Bring Your Own Body: transgender between archives and aesthetics presents the work of transgender artists and archives, from the institutional and sexological to the personal and liminal. After exhibiting in New York City and Chicago last year, the exhibit will open October 21 at Haverford College’s Cantor Fitzgerald Gallery and be on view until December 11. A program of performance, film, artists, and scholars in conversation, spanning several Philadelphia area venues, will accompany and expand on the exhibition’s conceptual and political stakes.
