Exhibition Launch Event: The Family As A Space For Gender Transition
4:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Join us for the launch of Olga Saavedra Montes de Oca’s solo exhibition: The Family As A Space For Gender Transition, which coincides with LGBT+ History Month in the UK.
By reflecting on contemporary images of transgender individuals in relation to their family, the artist seeks to query a focus on gender transition as a contemporary, individual process, to re-locate it in personal and family histories. The focus is on the heteronormative family as a space where gendered differences take place.
