(re)CONSTRUCTION: Gender and Performance

Grant writing is not for the faint of heart!

Whatever the outcome, I am so happy to have the opportunity to propose a new collaboration with stylist and performance artist Jack StockLynn. We submitted to the Portland Institute for Contemporary Art (PICA) Precipice Fund  and hope to share an interactive exhibition with you in November, 2018.

"(re)CONSTRUCTION: Gender Parody and Performance examines the performance of gender through 27 photographic portraits and an interactive photobooth. The models, local queer artists, will each represent nine points on a visual spectrum from hyper-masculine to super-feminine. During the event, participants in the “photobooth” will draw a “gender-card” and be clothed and photographed as that assigned gender. The 27 photographic portraits will be shown at the event while the public portraits are projected on one wall of the exhibition."
