Dan Cardinal McCartney: Misgendering Mouthfuls
November 3, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm MDT
Dan Cardinal McCartney’s Misgendering Mouthfuls is a performance that includes 25 lemons, 25 misgendering comments and invasive questions. The artist will read out the first round with ease, but then proceed to read the second round after biting into each sour lemon half. Through the mouth comes the hurt.
In light of Arts Commons’s recent censoring of B.G-Osborne’s exhibition, A Thousand Cuts—a work by a trans artist that deals with trans visibility in popular culture—in The New Gallery’s +15 window, our upcoming +15 exhibition by Cardinal McCartney has been cancelled in a joint decision made by Untitled Art Society and the artist.
“In full respect of B.G-Osbourne’s work, I am refusing to show in Arts Commons. Their act of censorship is transphobic and dangerous, and shows a complete lack of transparency. As a two-spirit, transgender artist, I understand the violence of silencing. I stand in solidarity with B.G-Osbourne, and the trans community at large.”
In lieu of the exhibition in Untitled’s +15 space, this performance by Cardinal McCartney will be hosted in conjunction with our current main space exhibition, What if we were alive.
