Momentum features three dynamic visual artists from across the country with a wide range of compelling work that explores original ideas surrounding gender. Heart-felt and provocative, this exhibition endeavors to strengthen trans artist visibility. Featured artists include: Tuesday Smillie and Rae Strozzo. Momentum is curated by Bay Area artist and Fresh Meat Exhibition Coordinator Jillian Soto.
Tuesday Smillie / Miss Day is a multimedia, trans-feminist artist. She is interested in art as a form of communication and as a means for social change. Sometimes this means making beautiful art with subversive content. Other times this means being honest with strangers, even though honest vulnerability can be terrifying.
Rae Strozzo is a gender queer writer, photographer, painter and educator. He is a recent graduate of the University of Arizona ‘s MFA program in photography. His educational background also includes writing, literature, philosophy and graphic design. He is also originally from southern Georgia but gladly calls Tucson home.
