In 1981, shortly after he had begun volunteering at the New Museum, Marcia Tucker asked Dan Cameron if he wished to submit an exhibition proposal to the museum, and the result became Extended Sensibilities, the first museum exhibition in the U.S. to examine contemporary through the lens of sexual identity. Bringing together artists such as Gilbert & George, Scott Burton, Harmony Hammond, Arch Connelly, Jody Pinto, Jedd Garet, Lee Gordon and Betsy Damon, the exhibition proved highly controversial, with reviewers split on whether it was a powerful statement or a well-intended failure.
"I was amazed that the legendary Marcia Tucker was potentially interested in my ideas, so I went for the subject that was least resolved in my own mind, in hope others would agree that candidness about sexual identity was key to understanding a particular cross-section of art in our time."
