The Flesh I Inhabit


This exhibition culminates a five-week art workshop series, during which trans, nonbinary and genderqueer young adults used art-making to explore their relationships with their bodies. These artists challenge transphobic notions of the body while also grappling with internalized gender expectations. For some, art-making was a language to express concepts of self that altogether reject the body as an element of one’s identity. For other artists, experiencing a sense of safety during the workshops allowed them to risk feeling the emotional and psychological pain of existing in their bodies. Still others nurtured a loving connection to the power of what their bodies can do.
