Liquid Gender: What is Truth? season

Sainsbury Centre

Norfolk Road, Norwich, England, NR4 7TJ, United Kingdom Map

In an exploration of the relationship between gender expression and identity, with a focus on pre-colonial traditions, the Sainsbury Centre will present works by a myriad of internationally acclaimed artists, including new work, UK premieres and new acquisitions.

New Orleans born Rashaad Newsome (b.1979), whose multi-disciplinary work explores black and queer space in art history, will make a new holographic work titled In the Absence of Evidence, We Create Stories (2024) which will look both to the cultural traditions of the past and the possibility of the future. Using objects from the Sainsbury Centre´s own collection, these will be used as part of a visual dialogue with African sculptures that transform into futuristic cyborgs and speak about their past, present and future.

In a UK premiere, American artist Martine Gutierrez (b.1989) will showcase her Demons (2018) series in its entirety which depicts the artist as a deity from Aztec, Maya and Yorùbá traditions. Part of her 'Indigenous Woman' publication, a 146-page art magazine inspired by glossy magazines, the images are infused with androgynous characteristics.

Afro-indigenous photographer Laryssa Machada (b.1993) and Indigenous creative Antonio Vital Neto Pankararu document queer Indigenous identities in the Brazilian Northeast in Origem (2020), a series of photographic portraits overlaid with Indigenous motifs accessible through an augmented reality (AR) application designed by pioneering Bolivian digital artist Lucia Grossberger Morales (b. 1952).
