(SIGNAL), curated by Alexis Heller, presents artworks that challenge the gender binary and explore a continuum of self-definition. Working in diverse mediums, 11 contemporary artists utilize code, collaborative representation, fantasy, and play to subvert histories that have denied gender variance. They question authorship over "the natural," make manifest sites of resistance, and reimagine a future where identities are fluid and celebrated as such.
The exhibition features work by Jess T. Dugan, Anahita Ghazvinizadeh, Nicki Green, Rhys Ernst & Zackary Drucker, Young Joon Kwak, Carlos Motta, Cobi Moules, Chelsea Thompto, Gil Yefman, and Rona Yefman.
The exhibition will be on view through April 17 at Smack Mellon. 92 Plymouth St., Brooklyn, N.Y.
