Artists Exhibiting in Trans Technology: Circuits of Culture, Self, Belonging
January 22-June 3, 2013

Mary H. Dana Women Artists Series Galleries, Douglass Library
image Shana Agid
website

My visual arts practice focuses my convictions, questions, and hunches about power and experiences of identity through an examination of the ways people's and system's histories intersect with and form social, physical, and political environments. My work explores the stories these environments can tell about speculation, longing, and myth at both small and encompassing scales. In my print series and artist books, I use woodcut, screen print, letterpress, digital printing, and movable mechanisms to explore the ways such stories appear in relatively public spaces and what they describe or make visible.

image Zachary Drucker
website

I am a young transgender artist/performer from Los Angeles, using a range of creative devices that all strive towards the portrayal of bodily identity, my own and that of others, obsessively infusing visual media -- photographs, videos adn performance art -- with acute, masochistic emotional compulsions. Conceiving, discovering, and manifesting myself as "a woman in the wrong world," my work is rooted in cultivating and investigating under-recognized aspects of transgender history, locating myself in that history, and communicating my contemporary experience of gender and sexuality.

Genderchangers
website

We are women and women-identified gender minorities and belonging to various generations and speak many different languages, we share a desire to shape the world we live in and are activists in making conscious choices about the technology we use. The Genderchangers operate on an informal, ad-hoc, D.I.Y., hands-on basis in a non-purpose-driven, non-competitive atmosphere of mutual respect. The Genderchangers act as a catalyst for participant-driven events, our emphasis is on experiential knowledge acquisition, expanding skills and insights through exchange and collaboration and learning by explaining/doing (not for instance, by R.T.F.M.).
