This program will be presented via Zoom, register online here.
The Stonewall Protests is a grassroots collective that centers Black trans experiences. Each week over the past year, the collective has gathered in person to create healing circles to release pain and foster joy within the community.
In this conversation, lead organizers Qween Jean and Joela Rivera will share their work with the collective, and discuss how histories of trans protest inform their perspectives and actions. Artists are an integral part of The Stonewall Protests, and photographs significantly document and amplify the gatherings and their impact. Four photographers—Lucy Baptiste., Ryan McGinley, Jarrett Robertson, and Madison Swart—will each share portraits they’ve taken. Then, the entire panel will consider the relationship between these striking images, the work of The Stonewall Protests, and where they hope this work will lead.
This program expands on the themes in the exhibition Grief and Grievance: Art and Mourning in America, previously on view from February 17–June 6, 2021.
