Bring Your Own Body: transgender between archives and aesthetics

Bring Your Own Body

Bring Your Own Body presents the work of transgender artists and archives, from the institutional and sexological to the personal and liminal. Taking its title from an unpublished manuscript by intersex pioneer Lynn Harris, the exhibit historicizes the sexological and cultural imaginary of transgender through a curatorial exploration of archival collections including the Kinsey Institute and the Transgender Archives at the University of Victoria. Simultaneously it presents contemporary transgender art and world making practices that contest existing archival narratives and construct new historical genealogies. Moving beyond the aesthetically defunct category of “identity politics” and the fraught gains of visibility, the artworks propose transgender as a set of aesthetics made manifest through multiple forms: paint, sculpture, textiles, film, digital collage, and performance.

Bring Your Own Body: transgender between archives and aesthetics is curated by Jeanne Vaccaro with Stamatina Gregory and organized for The Cooper Union. BYOB is presented by The John B. Hurford ’60 Center for the Arts and Humanities and Cantor Fitzgerald Gallery.

Opening Reception for Consent to Be Seen

Consent to be Seen exhibit

Riva Lehrer borrows the concept of "informed consent" from biomedicine in order to pose questions about consent in the context of portraiture, especially portraiture involving subjects who are socially stigmatized. As a portrait artist, anatomist, and disability activist, Lehrer is motivated by asking how socially devalued bodies are made visible and how portrait-making can intervene in processes of aesthetic, psychological, and sociocultural revaluation. Sponsored by Haverford College Libraries, the HCAH’s Tuttle Creative Residencies Program, Distinguished Visitors, Health Studies, and the Writing Program.

Keynote Event: Interview with Fred Krupp, President of the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF)

President Kim Benston invites you to join him at this special keynote event. Steven Smith, visiting assistant professor of economics and post doctorate fellow, will interview Fred Krupp. Through his pioneering work in using market forces to advance environmental goals, Krupp has become a leading advocate for environmental protection. Over his 31 years heading EDF, the group has grown from a small nonprofit to an international one with more than 500 staff in the United States, China, Mexico, and Europe. Under Krupp's leadership, EDF designed the market-based acid rain policy that reduced U.S. sulfur dioxide pollution by 76% since 1990. Since serving on U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu's advisory panel for shale gas production, Krupp has been a powerful voice for strong regulation to cut methane emissions and protect communities from air and water pollution caused by natural gas development. He also has led EDF's pathbreaking partnerships with FedEx, KKR, McDonald's, Walmart, and others. Krupp has been called on by Presidents George H. W. Bush, Clinton, and Obama to advise on numerous environmental issues. He is co-author with Miriam Horn of the New York Times best seller Earth: The Sequel: The Race to Reinvent Energy and Stop Global Warming.
