"Policing Gender: Transqueer Artist Lorenzo Triburgo Discusses Policing Gender with Sarah Gottesdiener"

What is a visual record of an emotional metaphor? How do we pay homage to the classical tropes in art while simultaneously wanting to smash them apart? What if we widened our lens, attempted to represent the unrepresentable? How can the political never not be personal? These are some of the questions brought up when engaging with Lorenzo Triburgo’s latest project, Policing Gender.

This work is so fascinating in part because of the hugely ambitious themes it attempts to investigate: freedom, imprisonment, absence, relationships, humanity, identities, systemic oppression, the Western canon’s engagement with Queers and other subversive folks, among others.
