Chris E Vargas—Artist’s Talk


Chris E. Vargas introduces the Museum of Transgender History & Art (MOTHA), a semi-fictional institution that serves as a platform for exhibiting transgender art and history. More specifically, this presentation will focus on the institution’s first foray into public art and the proposal of new monuments to the 1969 Stonewall riots. This intervention occurs in the lead-up to the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, a rebellion against the routine police harassment of the NYC gay bar that is credited with sparking gay liberation and the modern LGBTQI civil rights movement in the United States. The talk will explore both the known and unknowable stories, facts, and artifacts related to the events.
