At a moment of maximum anxiety and backlash over the fundamental human rights to autonomy, expressivity, modification, and self-transformation of the body, this convening of artists, activists, and intellectuals imagines and enacts transgender art and music as a vehicle for dialogue across differences.

This afternoon happening includes a series of panel discussions exploring topics including an examination of trans life through the lens of time, intergenerational voices telling their stories, and exploring the creative projects that have been born out of trans life. Additional on-site activations include media and reading rooms, and a sound installation created by the NYC TRANS ORAL HISTORY PROJECT co-curated by Aviva Silverman, which has collected over 200 interviews of trans New Yorkers and counting, organized in collaboration with the New York Public Library. This thought-provoking salon serves as a hub of activity celebrating transgender liberation through intergenerational kinship—sharing stories of survival, joy, and the legacies of counter-cultural movement building.

Presented in conjunction with MUTANT;DESTRUDO, the Armory’s new commission by the multifaceted artist and creator Arca that continues her practice of addressing themes of psychosexuality, science fiction, and gender identity.
