Criminal Queers visualizes a radical trans/queer struggle against the prison industrial complex and toward a world without walls. Remembering that prison breaks are both theoretical and material practices of freedom, this film imagines what spaces might be opened up if crowbars, wigs and metal files become tools for transformation.
What does it mean to live in the slash of a binary; male/female, gay/straight? FLEXIBLE HORIZONS; the body in transit is a curated group show that defines the end of “normal.” This exhibit explores the intersection of class, race and gender within the body-individual-community—through portraits, performance, experimental films and discussion.
Eric A. Stanley is a filmmaker, writer and coeditor of Captive Genders: Trans Embodiment and the Prison Industrial Complex. Chris Vargas is a video maker & interdisciplinary artist and Executive Director of MOTHA, the Museum of Transgender Hirstory & Art.
