A Perfect X: Intersecting Perspectives In Transgender Film, Art, And Performance

Friday, October 31, 2014 - 9:02am
The Jackman Humanities Institute Program for the Arts on Humour, Play, and Games is pleased to present

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.
