Deadline: Thu, January 3rd, 2019
Gender is a construct. It is assigned at birth and coded throughout our lives; we are signaled by "reveal parties" of blue or pink, by what is deemed masculine or feminine, and gender roles are subliminally reinforced in almost every aspect of life. Yet, what happens when we collectively begin to question this; what happens when we reject this? Shedding the husk of gender, Transcendence seeks work that imagines a world free from the burden of reality and absent of the weight of the past and present; how would identity manifest in the future? How could it look on another cosmic planet or in some fantastic alternate universe; what are the transformations that can occur when we are allowed boundless space?
Transcendence is an all-media juried exhibition open to artists who identify as members of the LGBTQIA+ community, with preference for submissions by artists who identify as transgender or as gender non-conforming (gender non-binary, genderqueer, genderfluid, agender, et cetera). This exhibition is juried by Antonius Tin Bui, a queer, gender-nonbinary, Vietnamese-American artist interested in complicating Vietnamese history and queerness through performance, textiles, and photography.
