Trigger is a vital reminder that identity politics, far from being a failure, as the right and left alike are quick to tell us, is alive, well, and getting on with changing the world.” —Aruna D’Souza

The accompanying catalog for the New Museum’s exhibition Trigger: Gender as a Tool and a Weapon investigates gender’s place in contemporary art and culture at a moment of political upheaval and renewed culture wars. The exhibition features over 40 artists working across a variety of mediums and genres, including film, video, performance, painting and sculpture. Many embrace explicit pleasure and visual lushness as political strategies, and some deliberately reject or complicate overt representation, turning to poetic language, docufiction and abstraction to affirm ambiguities and reflect shifting physical embodiment. Among the artists included are Morgan Bassichis, Nayland Blake, Pauline Boudry/Renate Lorenz, Vaginal Davis, ektor garcia, House of Ladosha, Candice Lin, Christina Quarles, Tschabalala Self, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, Sable Elyse Smith and Wu Tsang.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

DAZED

Miss Rosen

By positioning gender at the intersection of race, class, sexuality and disability, Trigger exposes deep ambiguities, curious contradictions and fundamental questions at the heart of life on earth.

The New York Times

The goal is to inject the disruptive power of not-normal back into the discussion of difference at ta time when the edge of mainstream ganess has been dulled by the quest for assimilation.

Hyperallergic

Alexis Clements

What’s incredibly refreshing and exciting about Trigger: Gender as a Tool and a Weapon is that it’s a queer art show that specifically seeks a space beyond a taxonomic obsession.

Cultured

Sara Roffino

Trigger...continues the institution's legacy of presenting radical ideas on gender and sexuality.

NEW RELEASE! Trigger: Gender as a Tool and a Weapon

“So why a show ‘about’ gender,” curator Johanna Burton asks in her Trigger: Gender as a Tool and a Weapon introductory essay. “Our hope is that Trigger offers a lens beyond the stalemate of identity even while acknowledging identity’s vexed central role in culture today (and perhaps always). Audre Lorde famously argued in her 1983 essay ‘The Master’s Tools Will Never Dismantle the Master’s House’ that one cannot use the tools of racist patriarchy to examine the ‘fruits’ of racist patriarchy. Following this logic, one must ask: What are our tools today? Can anything truly be seen as falling outside the conventions, systems of oppression, and stalemates we interrogate? Gender, as a moving target, usefully occupies and exceeds the context within which it is understood. If it is a weapon, it is one of deflection rather than outright attack. Indeed, in our current moment, when conservatives are calling for the ‘safe spaces’ they mocked not long ago, we might understand gender as a boomerang, hurled through cultural systems of appropriation and instrumentalization and returning transformed.” continue to blog
