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As the press release states, Bring Your Own Body takes its title from an unpublished manuscript by intersex pioneer Lynn Harris and proposes “transgender as a set of aesthetics made manifest through multiple forms.”
Past and presents artists involved include Mark Aguhar, Pauline Boudry / Renate Lorenz, Vaginal Davis, Juliana Huxtable, Pierre Molinier, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, the Museum of Transgender Hirstory and Art and more.
