A conversation about the queer lens with trans artist and Transparent producer Zackary Drucker (USA), genderqueer drag performer Asis D’Orange (ISR) and film critic Cerise Howard (AUS).
In this Masterclass, Zackary Drucker will deliver a keynote lecture about how she approaches queer creative practice and how she has contributed to queer representation through the TV series Transparent, for which she was a contributing producer, her work on the Gender Spectrum Collection – a genderqueer stock photography collection she created for Broadly – and her own artworks. What does it mean to Zackary to be a queer, trans artist, and what are the limits, provocations, critiques and creative goals of her work?
Zackary will then be joined by Aviv Shalem (Asis D’Orange) and film critic Cerise Howard on a panel to discuss queer art practices, how you 'queer' the gaze and what 'queering' the body through performance means to each of them. How does their art politicise the gaze and make 'queer' more visible?
The Masterclass will also include selected screenings of Drucker’s selected short films and video works, and a spoken word and video performance by Asis D’Orange.
