Exhibition: Phreaking Gender

September 26 - September 28

Torso of a trans masculine person applying T-gel on their hairy belly.


PHREAKING GENDER expands the themes of Nicole O’Reilly’s titular documentary into an installation art show. O’Reilly teams up with Luke ‘Luca’ Cockayne to create a space for all to explore their relationship to gender and the ways that art can support and enhance The Transgender Experience™.  In the face of oppressive paternalistic medical systems that deny trans people bodily autonomy, and at a time when our very existence is threatened, PHREAKING GENDER provides a techno-anarchist manifesto, showing that self-augmentation and the creation of radical queer communities is not just a necessity for wellbeing, but as an act of empowerment and rebellion in itself. Work by Nicole O’Reilly & Luke ‘Luca’ Cockayne.

This exhibition is open from 3-9pm on 26th, 27th and 28th September at the Creative Lab in CCA, Glasgow
