Join Chris E. Vargas, exhibition curator and executive director of the Museum of Transgender Hirstory and Art, for a talk about Trans Hirstory in 99 Objects. This program immediately follows Esdras Parra’s Este suelo secreto (To Be Human Once More), a reading of Parra’s poetry by micha cárdenas, whose work is featured in Trans Hirstory in 99 Objects. Vargas will expand upon themes of intergenerational connection raised in this reading and also speak to the process of bringing past and present together within the exhibition.
