Two artists discuss the contributions of trans art to the cultural and political landscape. Chris E. Vargas deploys humor and performance to explore how queer and trans people negotiate spaces for themselves within historical and institutional memory and popular culture. Vargas is also executive director of the Museum of Trans Hirstory & Art (MOTHA). Alok Vaid-Menon is a gender non-conforming performance artist, writer, and educator featured on HBO and MTV, whose work has been profiled in the New Yorker, the New York Times, and who recently received a Live Works Performance Act Award.
