Translucent curated by Niya B
Fri Nov 16, 19:00 to 22:00
Performance, Leyden Gallery, £7
Translucent is an artist-led evening of live art. For the first episode we are providing platform to trans*, non-binary and gender non-conforming artists.
Being an artist of a non-normative gender identity often means that:
- you are expected to produce work about your gender identity
- you are expected to do ‘drag’ performance
- you are expected to be loud in order to be heard
- you are expected to produce entertaining work
We are interested to show work from trans*, non-binary and gender non-conforming artists that begins with the experience of a non-normative gender identity but does not stay there. Instead, it expands to themes of love, desire, anxiety, social structures, environmental issues, boundaries (physical and mental), ways of living, survival, the now and the future and so on. We welcome work that seeks to communicate with the audiences, at an emotional, conceptual, political or spiritual level.
