Curator, Cora Lambert, is back with another exciting duet of artists for the Leslie/Lohman Museum. Transgressive is a two person show pairing painter, Joelle Circé, and photographer, Jess Dugan. Selected to hang in the Museum’s front windows Transgressive will be on view at the SOHO location from Nov 8th – Jan 15, 2012 (the window show is viewable for 24/7).
Circé’s paintings of female bodied women explores the traditional genera of portraiture. Trans and queer identified women are rendered seductive in strong powerful strokes reminiscent of German Expressionists Max Beckman and Otto Dix.

The Pole Man, 2011, Oil on canvas, 40 x 20”
Jess Dugan turns her camera on the guys, focusing on the transmasculine spectrum. In a photographic portrait style pioneered by Catherine Opie, these chromatic large format shots seem almost documentary-like giving us glimpses into personal and private worlds.
