ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

This talk is presented as part of the programming for Now You See Me, a photo-based exhibition that explores issues related to gender and cultural identity. All variously identify as women, femme, and non-binary, artists Dayna Danger, Chun Hua Catherine Dong, Gaëlle Elma, Leila Fatemi, Kablusiak, Meryl McMaster, and Vivek Shraya employ tactics of performing, concealing, and revealing their bodies and those of their collaborators, to produce works that challenge normative, colonial assumptions.
