Transfluent is a three month-long public engagement in support of trans representation and advocacy. Through varied forms of expression — visual, performative, and conversational — this program invites patrons and visitors to engage with the question: Am I transfluent? Now through January 9, 2016

In celebration, two art exhibitions — Pearly Foam and Trisha Shattuck: Machinations of a Monk — are being held concurrently at Center on Halsted and David Weinberg Photography. With an exhibition anchored at each site, corollary programming is scheduled throughout the season between the two spaces to offer individuals the opportunity to engage with artistic forms of trans representation coupled with moments of critical learning and understanding. Programming for the season extends beyond the two art shows to include conversations with the artists, screenings of their work, the Trans Day of Remembrance commemoration, the trans fluential film festival, and a legal panel highlighting trans rights.

Please join us at the following public events, also formed in partnership with Chicago Media Project. For more information:
