Join us for the opening of Hayden Stern (Bioluminator Studios) show featuring original works from their Trans Tarot series.
Showing September 19th through October 15th.
The Trans Tarot is a deck illustrated from submitted selfies from the transgender community. Each image celebrates the enormous range of presentation, identity, and life experience that trans people bring to the table. The deck was borne out of the concept that gender, like tarot, is a mystical process of transformation. As a transgender individual, the artist has used symbolism to understand their identity amidst a gendered society. It is their hope that this deck will resonate with their community while inspiring cisgender individuals to examine their own relationship with society, gender, and embodiment.
Hayden Stern is an artist whose work is informed by the experience of living in a trans, disabled body. They create two dimensional art in ink, paint, and fiber to tenderly portray the reclamation of body/self in a society that would prefer they were either cured or absent. They are based in unceded Coast Salish Territories (Seattle).
Ballard Night Out is presented by Push/Pull - supporting arts and cultural events in Ballard's 98107 & 98117 zip codes.
