Join us for an online symposium featuring Elliot Montague, Emma Frankland, Texas Isaiah, Tourmaline, and Vick Quezada.
Trans*Revolutions is a virtual symposium featuring artist-activists whose work is inspired by and engaged in imagining trans* and genderqueer histories, performances, identities, and aesthetics. Elliot Montague (film), Emma Frankland (performance), Texas Isaiah (photography), Tourmaline (film), and Vick Quezada (multimedia and performance) will deliver artist talks, followed by a roundtable and Q&A. The symposium will explore such questions as: How do trans* theoretical lenses, artistic practices, and performances address and resist ongoing violence against trans* people, in particular those of color, and fashion alternative modes of activating, archiving, transforming, and transfiguring revolutionary landscapes and embodied knowledges across space and time?
This event will take place online only, and is free and open to the public. See event website to register, view the artists’ art and films before the conversation, and contribute questions.
