The Bring Your Own Body group exhibition is on at New York’s The Cooper Union, running from October 13 to November 14.
Organised by Jeanne Vaccaro and Stamatina Gregory, the show presents a range of work across paint, sculpture, textiles, film, digital collage and performance exploring “new historical genealogies” among transgender artists and archives.
As the press release states, Bring Your Own Body takes its title from an unpublished manuscript by intersex pioneer Lynn Harris and proposes “transgender as a set of aesthetics made manifest through multiple forms.”

Like what you see on AQNB? We’d like to ask you for some help and encouragement by way of a monthly subscription to our Patreon. All funds raised will go directly to editorial commissioning and therefore support our contributors in their excellent work.
It is only through the dedication and generosity of everyone involved that AQNB manages to continue. More than ever we need to build a resilient space for independent media, one that works in collaboration with its artists, administrators, and audiences. Not everyone can afford to give donations we know - but if you can spare $1 a month, you like what AQNB is about and want to secure this space for the future, then please lend a hand and sign up. Thank u so much! <3
