Event Details

Visit MoCADA Abolition House for our newest exhibition, Flaunt: Being the Dream, curated by MoCADA’s own Zola-Jourdan Savage with a special soundscape by Run P.. It’s a dynamic, multimedia group exhibition that explores the Black Transgender, Non-Binary, and Gender-Nonconforming (TGNC) experience to unpack contemporary perceptions of identity via the expression of gender and sex.

On View Dates: Saturday, June 1- Sunday, November 3, 2024
Time: 12-5pm
Location: MoCADA Abolition House, House 7A Nolan Park, Governors Island

In this presentation, universal themes including social roles and the way we inhabit them, cultural cues, power structures, survival, pleasure, and their intersection with race, transcend prejudices to represent the purest form of self-realization.

This exhibition is made possible thanks to the Ford Foundation, the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, the Coalition for Theaters of Color, NYSCA, and the NYC Department of Youth and Community Development.
