Transtravaganza: Visual Art Exhibition

September 7 @ 9:00 am - September 20 @ 5:00 pm UTC+10

What does it mean to be unapologetically yourself? To fully inhabit your gender? To be truly TRANSTRAVAGANT in your expression of selfhood?

TRANSTRAVAGANZA is a collection of works from Melbourne/Narrm-based trans and gender diverse (TGD) artists that shines a spotlight on the beauty and diversity of TGD experience. Together, these works seek the nuances that make TGD people unique, reflecting back expectations to both meet and challenge them. Moving through faith, fear, cynicism, and hope, these works take up the space that TGD people are so often denied. TRANSTRAVAGANZA asserts that trans and gender diverse experiences are valuable and worthy of celebration in all of their expressions, from the extravagant to the everyday.

Presented by Myriad collective as part of Footscray Community Arts Centre’s Call to Create program.

myriad collective is based on the lands of the Kulin nations, always and forever the home of the Wurundjeri, Boonwurrung, Wathaurong, Taungurong and Djadjawurung people. We acknowledge that we work in a country under colonial occupation, and aim to challenge continuing racism and dispossession alongside transphobia.
