Trans Genre opening party
August 30, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
‘Trans Genre’ showcases the work of 5 local artists who, over the past year, have developed critical, creative works that reconsider the popular representation of trans* folks and offer dynamic, expansive, and profound understandings of trans* identities and experiences. In 1991, trans theory pioneer Sandy Stone suggested that the trans body is a genre in and of itself, “a set of embodied texts whose potential for productive disruption of structured spectra of desire has yet to be explored.” The artists of ‘Trans Genre’ reflect on the experience of moving through the world in ways that, as described by Stone, “productively disrupt” traditional terms of social and bodily engagement.
