Lecture and Opening: Friday, February 1, 6pm

Rowan Renee is a genderqueer artist using photography to interrogate how sexual bodies are gendered, victimized, policed and punished. They produce an appropriate image in order to create transformative meaning from experiences of violence, persecution, and erasure that threaten queer and feminine subjects. Through a range of photographic, printmaking and sculptural techniques, Renee intervenes on issues of authorship and image-ownership, representation within the art-historical canon, and the codification of colonial, patriarchal and homophobic biases in sex law and copyright law. Abjection, as a queer concept and aesthetic framework, is a vehicle of material transfiguration.

Renee has received awards from The Aaron Siskind Foundation, The Rema Hort Mann Foundation and The Anchorage Museum of Art. Their previous solo exhibitions include "Z" at Pioneer Works Center for Art and Innovation (2015), "Bodies of Wood" (2017) at The Aperture Foundation and “Z” at Saint Joseph's University (2018). They have received fellowships from The Jerome Foundation, the McColl Center for Visual Art and the Ossian Arts Fellowship at the Jain Family Institute. They have been profiled on NPR, in The New York Times, VICE, Hyperallergic, Huffington Post, American Photo Magazine and Guernica, among many other publications. They are currently living between Brooklyn, New York, and Ann Arbor, Michigan.
