Disruptive Perspectives is an exhibition that explores gender, sexuality, and identity. The artists included use photography to articulate an expansive range of identities that cannot be sufficiently characterized using simplistic binaries. Rather than rendering identity as fixed, the works on view consider gender and sexuality as negotiations that are shaped by the human psyche, the passage of time, and the complex relationship between self and other.
This exhibition is co-curated by Allison Grant, former assistant curator of exhibitions and education at the Museum of Contemporary Photography at Columbia College Chicago and Nadine Wietlisbach, director at Photoforum Pasquart in Biel, Switzerland. The exhibition will be presented simultaneously at both curators’ home institutions.
The MoCP is supported by Columbia College Chicago, the MoCP Advisory Board, the Museum Council, individuals, and private and corporate foundations. The 2017-2018 exhibition season is sponsored by the Efroymson Family Fund and partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency. This exhibition is generously supported by a grant from the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia.
