Gender/Power Composition IV

  • Smack Mellon

Maya Ciarrocchi and Kris Grey will perform Gender/Power Composition IV as part of SIGNAL curated by Alexis Heller.

SIGNAL, curated by Alexis Heller, opens at Smack Mellon on March 5 and will be on view through April 17, 2016. This exhibition presents artworks that challenge the gender binary and explore a continuum of self-definition. Working in diverse mediums, these eleven contemporary artists utilize code, collaborative representation, fantasy and play to subvert histories that have denied gender variance. They question authorship over ‘the natural’, make manifest sites of resistance, and reimagine a future where identities are fluid, becoming ad infinitum and celebrated as such.
