PANEL OVERVIEW: Transformer continues our ongoing FRAMEWORK Panel Series with FRAMEWORK Panel #27: Challenging Colonialism in Contemporary Art. This panel will highlight emerging artists challenging commonly held notions of how their identities have been defined through colonialism, history, and popular culture.
This panel is presented in conjunction with Transformer’s Spring exhibition, Queer Tropics - a group exhibition that considers the abstract idea of the tropics and how that vision has been variously created, reinforced, and confronted. Originally opened in November 2017 at Pelican Bomb Gallery X in New Orleans, Queer Tropics features artworks that examine the visual and cultural systems through which one imagines the landscape of the tropics as a site of leisure, sensuality, and play.
