Satellite Exhibition: Center on Halsted

In conjunction with the museum’s fall exhibition Disruptive Perspectives (October 12 – December 22), the Museum of Contemporary Photography is excited to announce a satellite exhibition of work by Jess T. Dugan at the Center on Halsted. The satellite exhibition will highlight pieces from “To Survive on this Shore.” This project, created in collaboration with Dr. Vanessa Fabbre, assistant professor at the Brown School of Social Work at Washington University in St. Louis, combines photographs of transgender and gender non-conforming people over the age of fifty with interviews about their life experiences in regard to gender, identity, age, and sexuality and provides a nuanced view into the complexities of aging as a transgender person. In these moving portraits, Dugan and Fabbre seek to bring older members of the trans community, many of whom are Chicago residents, into the foreground.

This satellite exhibition will run from October 20 – November 28, 2017 on the second floor of the Center on Halsted, located at 3656 North Halsted Street. The Center on Halsted is the most comprehensive LGBTQ community center in the Midwest.

A reception with the artist will take place at the Center on Halsted on November 14, 2017 from 6-8 p.m.
