Genre Reassignment feat. Cyree Jarelle Johnson

Come on down to Metropolitan Bar with your poetry, short stories, original songs, or ancient Livejournal entries for our resident Literary Gatekeepers Drs. Juno Tempest and Xerxes Verdammt to appeal your genre reassignment.

Happy Hour is from 4-8 PM! (Just PLEASE remember to TIP YOUR BARTENDERS as they serve you a glass of your favored self-medication)

Have a laugh, have a cry, and have a queer old time, as trans artists regale you with a colorful spectrum of genre-variant tales.

Your beneficent Gatekeepers would like to work through our entire case load during Office Hours, but if there's a queue, you'll have to wait until next month, as sign up is on a first-come-first-assigned basis, with our first SEVEN readers chosen at random being awarded free-drink tickets with their reassigned genres.

Office Hours end promptly at 9:00 PM, so make sure to come early if you want to read!

An Etiology of Omission: Disability In and Out of Protest Art

 

An Incomplete History of Protest: Selections from the Whitney’s Collection, 1940—2017 invites us to consider what is missing, and why. This program explores disability as a political and aesthetic category in artists’ reckoning with the most pressing issues of their day. 

Disability is rarely articulated as its own category in exhibitions of protest art, yet it is often an unacknowledged presence. Disabled artists, though, have been more specific and pointed in their work, and their artistry revitalizes aesthetic categories by subverting and reappraising the existing representational milieux. Our focus here will be on charting an etiology of the omission of disability—its political, historical, and curatorial roots—and outlining a more complete picture. The Disability/Arts/NYC Task Force (DANT) presents Riva Lehrer, Lawrence Carter Long, Kevin Gotkin & Simi Linton.

This event is free. Registration is required.
