Tell Me The Truth
Toronto-based multi-media artist Chase Joynt, and Kristen Schilt (University of Chicago, Department of Sociology), explore the construction of public narratives about institutional and individual identities in a year-long project entitled Tell Me The Truth. Throughout 2013-14, Joynt & Schilt will curate a series of screenings, readings, and multi-media installations that highlight queer artistic collaboration in an attempt to deploy and disrupt positions of scholarly, artistic and experiential authority.
Mellon fellows Kristen Schilt & Chase Joynt host Representing Trans*, a day-long symposium on the politics and practices of trans* representation. With keynote speaker Kate Bornstein.
