"Hermeneutic Cycle: Three Phases" in Coded at Lesley University

Detail from sketch of "Hermeneutic Cycle: Three Phases"

An installation/performance I'm creating, Hermeneutic Cycle: Three Phases, will be included in BLAA's Coded show at Lesley University, juried by Danielle Abrams.

Coded explores the unique role language has played in queer culture as it has developed and flourished since the 19th century. From the outset, coded language has allowed connections and communities to form among gender and sexual minorities in the midst of a hostile dominant culture. As queer culture expanded, shifting and splintering into different subgroups, slang became a way for GSM-identified people to find others who shared similar interests and ideals within the larger milieu of queer spaces. And today, as LGBTQIA identities become more accepted and integrated into mainstream society, language serves as a way to subvert sexist, transphobic, heterosexist, and racist tropes in American popular culture.

Reception: February 16, 6:00-8:00 pm RSVP

"Taste in Art" Included in YOU MADE IT! Exhibit at Flux Factory
to May 18

"Taste in Art" Included in YOU MADE IT! Exhibit at Flux Factory

YOU MADE IT! celebrates the exuberance of the Flux Factory community and the physicality of Flux Factory’s building, presenting work made by our 2013-2014 artists-in-residence. The show will consider the bodies and practices that fill Flux Factory; it will be as much about proxemics as about personalities and artwork. The artworks will be arranged according to the artists’ heights, and the installation of the show will change throughout the duration of the show, remaining in flux.

Opening and performances: Saturday May 3rd, 7pm +
Open house (in conjunction with Open Engagement) and performances: Friday May 16th, 1-3pm (Conference Attendees, reserve your ticket today!)
Sunrise Tour Performance led by Katrina Neumann: Sunday May 11 & Sunday May 18, 5:30am departing from Flux Factory. RSVP required.

Exhibition curated by Christopher Stiegler
