In loving memory of Israel Julien (1981-2009)
I’m always thinking of you even when I’m kissing another boy is an intimate collection of more than 100 objects – some art, some ephemera, some gifted, some found – all of which have a story. In the tradition of oral storytelling, making it both subject and medium, Ethan Shoshan presents a narrative for each object on display. Stories range from rhetorical and touching to explicit and provocative; each lending clairvoyance to a voyeuristic experience.
