During a week which began with reports of an administrative attempt to eliminate “transgender” as an official federal designation, Chris E. Vargas—founder of the institutionally ambiguous Museum of Transgender Hirstory and Art—will bring his early work to the Downtown Independent.
The Dirty Looks co-presentation will include screenings of EXTRAORDINARY PREGNANCIES, LIBERACÉON, FALLING IN LOVE (with Greg Youmans), and CRY BOY CRY. The artist will be in attendance.
And in New York City, the MOTHA AND CHRIS E. VARGAS—CONSCIOUSNESS RAZING show and residency continues at the New Museum.
Tuesday, October 23, at 8 pm.
