The New Yorker on Liz Collins and The New Museum’s “Trigger: Gender as a Tool and a Weapon”

Liz Collins, who has an upcoming exhibition at LMAKgallery, is one of the artists in The New Museum’s “Trigger: Gender as a Tool and a Weapon”.

Recently the show was featured in the New Yorker:

“’Trigger’ arrives on two tracks: the art and the attendant discourse. The head curator, Johanna Burton, convened a committee of academics to help plan the show. The chewy catalogue presents roundtable discussions that review the legacies of four previous exhibitions at the museum […] Indeed, as a tool and as a weapon, the term has served to sabotage thinking along traditional male/female lines—while inflicting collateral damage, which Burton’s advisers disarmingly note, on clear thought along much of any lines at all. Burton declares, at the outset of the transcribed conversations, ‘a paralysis within discourse’ regarding identity politics.”

The show is on view now through January 21, 2018.
