This is My Body features performance-based videos from international artists that boldly demand body autonomy through performative action. The selected artists shake the fraught roots of patriarchy by re-telling and in some instances, re-inventing, their personal and historical autobiographies. What does it mean to present - My Body, My Female Body, My Gender Non-Conforming Body - amidst our present post-Trump, heteronormative revivalism? The selected works offer an urgent reminder that gender and racial equity are far from actualized.
Featured Artists: Chun Hua Catherine Dong (Montreal, Canada), GOODW.Y.N. (New York, NY), Katya Grokhovsky (New York, NY/Ukraine), Tone Haldrup Lorenzen (Berlin, Germany/Denmark), Alison Pirie (New York, NY), Natacha Voliakovsky (Buenos Aires)
Collective Misnomer is an artist run project focused on exhibiting contemporary time-based art (sound, video, performance) on the occupied Ute, Cheyenne, and Arapahoe land in what is currently called Denver, Colorado. Events may take place at various venues so be sure to verify where they are each time.
