Expanding upon and coming into conflict with the seminal work Brandon by Shu Lea Cheang, researcher and community health worker Max Whitehurst leads an open discussion on trans histories, dissensus, and the politics of recognition. This conversation aims to prioritise trans and non-binary voices, but all are welcome. The conversation will be followed by the sharing of kai.

This event is part of Gus Fisher Gallery’s Queer Algorithms exhibition, extended until June 27. The exhibition brings together local and international artists from the LGBTQIA+ community who are in the process of reconfiguring new algorithms for change against continued systems of exclusion.

With generous support from Rule Foundation.
