Mariette Pathy Allen: Transcendents
Tuesday, October 17, 2017 - 5:00pm to 8:00pm
As part of the the Click! Photography Festival, we are please to welcome Mariette Pathy Allen back to the Power Plant Gallery for a one-night exhibition of images from her new book, 'Transcendents'. Allen will be on hand to sign copies of the book, published by Durham-based Daylight Books. Books will be available for purchase during the event.
The exhibition runs from 3pm-8pm in the boiler room of the power plant building, next door to the gallery. The reception will begin at 5pm, with an artist's talk by Allen at 6:30pm.
For her new book 'Transcendents', photographer Mariette Pathy Allen collaborates with Dr. Eli Coleman, professor and director of the Program in Human Sexuality at the University of Minnesota, to document the phenomenon of gender variance among the spirit cults of Burma and Thailand. Zackary Drucker, an American transgender multimedia artist, LGBT activist, and producer of the TV series 'Transparent', based out of Los Angeles also contributes and essay.
