MCA Talk: Zackary Drucker, The Skew

About the event

Artist Zackary Drucker orchestrates a performative panel to explore issues of “identity” as a theme in contemporary art, transgender representation, and the illusory nature of celebrity culture. Thinking critically about the structure of the diversity talk, Drucker appropriates the format of women-centered, roundtable talk shows.

The panel of trans* women invited by Drucker to participate in the program include actor Van Barnes; Precious Davis, community activist and Assistant Director of Diversity Recruitment Initiatives at Columbia College; Jen Richards, Codirector of The Trans 100 and creator of We Happy Trans; and Angelica Ross, Executive Director and CEO of TransTech Social Enterprise.
