BENNY NEMEROFSKY RAMSAY is an artist, diarist and correspondent. His artistic work mediates emotional encounters with musical, art historical and Queer cultural material, encouraging deep listening and empathic viewing. In his work you will find bells, bouquets, ceramic vases, enchanted forests, folding screens, gay elders, glitter, gold leaf, love letters, imaginary paintings, madrigals, megaphones, mirrors, naked men, sex-changing flowers, sign language, subtitles, and the voices of birds, boy sopranos, contraltos, countertenors, and sirens.
Nemerofsky’s work has been exhibited internationally and is part of the permanent collections of the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna, the Polin Museum for the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw, Thielska Galleriet Stockholm and the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa. He has a Ph.D. from the University of Edinburgh, where he was a member of the Cruising the 70s: Unearthing Pre-HIV/AIDS Queer Sexual Cultures research project from 2016-2019. As of March 2020, Nemerofsky is one of nine artists in residence at the Fondation Fiminco's new site in Romainville, France.
