Trans (In)Visibility in Art
Transgender Studies Quarterly
Through an examination of how the art world engages with transness, the piece begins with an exploration of why we need an understanding of trans subjectivity that is not beholden to or subsumed by the art world’s overriding attention and interest in queer subjectivities and concerns. The author then describes how trans methodologies are applied within their artistic and curatorial practice and how those methodologies are situated within the broader context of the art world. Particular focus is given to codes as both the subject (social, governmental, and technical codes) and medium (visual and computer codes) of the author’s work.
