A new exhibition in Brooklyn will celebrate and explores trans identity. "Identities" presents recent works, including a "femme wall" installation by artist Violet Frances, in conversation with a body of 100-plus photographs by an anonymous photographer of the 1920s-30s. Other featured artists include Lili Elbe, Bellmer, Picabia, Molinier, and others.
"Gender identity is generally understood as a person’s internal and individual experience of gender, one’s sense of being a woman, a man, both, neither, or anywhere along this spectrum," the gallery said in a statement. "This exhibition is about finding one’s identity and is built around two bodies of artwork that explore this complex process from the perspectives of two different artists."
See the show at "B" Dry Goods, a multidisciplinary gallery in Crown Heights from September 8 through October 21.
