Rebecca Levi, Artist

Rebecca Levi’s work captures and redefines ideas of American domesticity and desire, subverting the norm with the unexpected as it invites a collision between traditional handicrafts and unexpected sources like vintage physique magazines, pin-ups, and comic books. A native New Yorker, resident of Brooklyn, and frequent visitor of beloved Provincetown, much of her inspiration is from source material culled from flea markets in Chelsea and vintage stores on Commercial Street.

I am happy and honored to be one of the artists featured as part of Visual AIDS' Play Smart Series.

Inspired by the exhibition Queer Threads, the fifth edition of Play Smart is curated and designed by John Chaich The series features fun, sexy and creative trading cards, packaged with condoms and lube. The back of each Play Smart trading card features honest and straightforward information to promote harm reduction, HIV testing, pre and post exposure prophylaxis as well as raise awareness around HIV/AIDS advocacy.


Recent individual and group exhibitions and shows of her embroidery and pen-and-ink work include "Queer Threads: Crafting Identity and Community" at the Leslie Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art (New York), Soho Gallery for Digital Art (New York), Four Eleven Studio (Provincetown), Deluca Gallery (New York pop-up), Galapagos Art Space (Brooklyn), and Katharine Mulherin Contemporary Arts Projects (Toronto).
