Portraits After Calvary: Tiger Reed


Black Box Theatre, McGlothlin Center for the Arts (MCA) — 30481 Garnand Dr.

Portraits After Calvary 

Exhibit: Nov. 6- Dec. 9, 2017, except November 22-26 for Thanksgiving break

Printmaker, drawing, and mixed media artist Tiger Reed explores the notion of masculinity as the current conceptual foundation of his studio practice.   He actively investigates male identity as embodied by prominent figures and tropes in popular culture in order to address personal questions surrounding his developing transgender identity.  Through this investigation, he constructs bodies of work that address the emotional landscape of his personal transition from female to male.  In conjunction with his own narrative, he examines categorical expectations of masculinity in regard to how all identity is perceived, formed, and comprehended. These works and lecture will challenge the superficial simplification of masculinity by reworking themes that are a part of American patriarchal history, Modernist art, and contemporary culture.
