Academic Commons just keeps getting better
Labels: Academic Commons
What DID the Library Acquire in March?
New Art Exhibit in Azariah's
trans-masculine self-representations: images of identity
Azariah's Cafe April 4 - 28, 2008
Exhibiting the work of eddie gesso, Melsen Carlsen and Cobi Moules, each of whom explores identity through diverse visual media.
This project displays the ways in which individual artists use self-representations as a means of exploring negotiating trans-masculine identities. In addition, this project works to place these images in a social and artistic memory by presenting works in a public forum, and recording this exhibit in print form. By focusing on self-representations, this project centers gender identity formations and the ways in which discourses of gender shape artists' patterns of representation.
