Notes:
These films and videos rebel against workaday conventions of gender, sexuality, the body, and subjectivity. Utilizing theatrical traditions and a powerful performative agency, their makers subvert and then reconfigure sexual difference, queer subjectivity, and gender performativity. These works collectively suggest unexpected yet open pathways for desire and subjectivity. Curated by Jonathan M. Hall and Michelle Puetz.
