Opening Reception and Artist Talk for Transformations: A Gender Exploration by Mariette Pathy Allen
Opening reception and artist talk for Transformations: A Gender Exploration by Mariette Pathy Allen on Friday, October 28, from 5 pm to 7 pm
Mariette Pathy Allen has been photographing the transgender, genderfluid, and intersex communities for over 40 years. Her photography and multiple written works on the subject of gender consciousness have brought the topic to the forefront of institutions and people across the globe. Her work has been recognized and archived by Duke University’s Rare Book and Manuscripts Library and The Sallie Bingham Center for Women’s Studies.
In addition to her work on gender, her experience as a painter leads her photography to frequently explore color, space, and cultural contrasts like east/west, new/old, and handmade/manufactured.
This exhibition is a tribute to her life’s work and the continual fight for gender exploration. It will feature selections from Transformations: Crossdressers and Those Who Love Them and the Fantasy & Flowers series. See the beautiful and powerful images and learn more from Mariette Pathy Allen during her artist talk on October 28, from 5 pm to 7 pm!
This exhibition will be on view from October 2022 until March 2023.
