Presented as part of Just In Time: 30 Years of Collective Practice
Friday, April 26 – Sunday, June 23, 2019
Presented on-loop as a single-channel audio installation in Black Box, This is a Transmission features the voices of trans and non-binary artists from the Vox Populi community that also creates a site for conversation around the metaphysical and spiritual dimensions of non-cis experience. The audio-only approach in a gallery space moves away from the familiarity of visual representation of trans and non-binary selves. The immediacy of the form also opens up a direct and necessary conversation around an often under-talked about part of trans and non-binary lives. The work is a collective action to include and share personal experiences, tools, practices, language, concepts, and aspirations as an urgent and fundamental part of trans and non-binary wellness, wholeness, and creative life.
This is a Transmission features current members Levi Bentley, Marie Hinson, Marion Horowitz and Lane Speidel, as well as Vox Populi’s 2019 Black Box Curatorial Fellow Malachi Lily and guest artist Eppchez, with more contributions to come. This is a Transmission is an iteration of a project conceived and originated by former Vox member Catherine ‘Chet’ Pancake with current member Marie Hinson.
