As 1990s Indian politics became dominated by Hindu chauvinism, gay painter Bhupen Khakhar harnessed Hindu image practices to explore gay love. Simultaneously, Cuban-American, gay artist Felix Gonzalez-Torres turned to Catholic ritual to confront AIDS and the homophobic politics that helped it spread. How do these works of art, steeped in religiosity, use the secular space of the art museum to prove the truth of love?
