Jono Vaughan: Project 42
April 4 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Join Rainbow Center and Tacoma Art Museum in welcoming Jono Vaughn for an artist talk at the Museum. “Project 42” addresses the pattern of violence against transgender and gender non-conforming people in the United States, providing both a form of memorialization and an entry point for engagement and discussion. Begun in 2012, the project’s name is taken from the short life expectancy of transgender and gender non-conforming individuals in the United States, which is estimated at forty-two years, based—in lieu of official data, which often excludes these identities—on third-party texts and research. The project will continue until 42 garments and memorial actions, one for each individual represented in the chronologically selected group, are completed.
