Gender in Wonderland: Zachary Drucker and Rhys Erst on the Art and Play of Gender in ‘Relationship’ and ’She Gone Rogue'

Zackary Drucker and Rhys Ernst are contemporary artists who have come to international attention for the intimate and diaristic recording of their relationship as a transgender couple transitioning in opposite directions (Ernst becoming male from female, and Drucker female from male). Their acts of self-fashioning entail shifting subjectivities and identities, playing both subject and object in their creative negotiation and collaborations. In Drucker’s words, “Our bodies are a microcosm of the greater external world as it shifts to a more polymorphous spectrum of sexuality. We are all collectively morphing and transforming together, and this is just one story of an opposite-oriented transgender couple living in Los Angeles, the land of industrialized fantasy.” The artists were recently featured in the Whitney Biennial, New York, 2014. Sponsored by the Jackman Humanities Institute Program for the Arts, 2014-15.

This event is free and open to the public.  For further information, please contact the Jackman Humanities Institute at (416) 946-0313.

This event is co-sponsored by the University of Toronto Art Centre, the Department of Historical Studies and the UTM program in Women and Gender Studies.
