Platonic Intimacy Opening Recap

The Le Sigh's first ever art exhibition, Platonic Intimacy, opened last weekend on September 23rd at Babycastles Gallery in Manhattan.


In collaboration with Hayley Cranberry, our new arts editor, The Le Sigh put on an art show featuring 10 women and non-binary artists. Artists were asked to submit art in any medium that spoke to the theme of platonic intimacy. The theme stemmed from a conversation about how the art word is oversaturated by narratives of sex and romantic intimacy, whereas platonic love is often overlooked, though just as important. Thank you to Babycastles, all of the artists that participated, and Boyscout Thriller, Mulligrub, Dump Him, and Turnip King for playing an awesome show.

Platonic Intimacy will be open until October 21st, with gallery hours from 2-6 PM on Saturdays. Babycastles Gallery is located at 145 West 14th Street in Manhattan. View more information here.
