The pair will discuss their creative work apart and together — including their new experimental film collaboration, “She Gone Rogue” — and talk about gender and sexuality in their lives.
Ernst and Drucker regard gender and sexuality as distinct, and focus on fighting gender inequality.
Ernst is a filmmaker whose latest short, “The Thing,” premiered at Sundance. He’ll also discuss that film along with his “New Trans Cinema” approach, which seeks a more complex view of gender representation in film.
Drucker is a multimedia artist, working in performance, photography and more, whose work has been exhibited nationally and overseas.
While visiting CMU, they’ll tape an episode of Trans-Q Television, a web-based variety show being developed by students of Associate Art Professor Suzie Silver.
Their talk, which is free, will be held at 4:30 p.m. Thu., Oct. 18, at Porter Hall 100, on the CMU campus.
