Curated by Pam Patterson with Serena Lee
Co-sponsored by Women in Action (CWSE/OISE/UT),
XPACE Cultural Centre, and the AGO Youth Council
(presenting ShiftChange) with Toronto video, film, and
new media artists Loree Erickson, Spy Dénommé-Welch,
Jo SiMalaya Alcampo, Alexandra Hazisavvas, fibre
artist, Frances Mahon, with a performance by Claudia
Wittmann.
Gender bend, gender blend - Oh ! Have we got trouble! The fun,
sexxy, hot, meets “voguing” - What a “drag”! Get rid of those bina-
ries! Engage with life-sized on the wall grls/gys and video & film
by native-tranny-poly-queer-gimp-homo-gender-
b(l)enders. “Perform” (or critique) a new persona at the gallery site,
see a performance and a portable gender-abled potty, and work-
shop, in conversation, with the artists on site. Play with where you
stand (or pass?).... anything is dizzyingly possible.
