Featuring works by, Holly Timpener, Eva Gonzalez and Fanny Aboulker, Epicenter Revolutions is a performance event that investigates internal transformations within performance art.
All artists in this project are transgender and non-binary. In their works, they examine how felt, internal transformations that occur through durational action(s) support transgender and non-binary identity formation and act as a form of political resistance.
Transgender and non-binary bodies simply occupying space is an act of resistance towards heteronormative ideals in which everyday, lived experiences guide the construction of identity and community in public and counterpublic spaces.
This event illuminates how transgender and non-binary bodies engage in durational performative action to listen, activate, and understand the personal and political affects of their lived experience.
The artists insist that the acknowledgment and engagement of microchanges felt by transgender and non-binary people creates resistance to oppression, heteronormativity, and gender binaries, ultimately creating systematic change, social justice, and united spaces where non-normative identities can flourish.
Witnesses are free to come in, and out of the space at any time they would like during the duration of the event.
