FLASH TALK: DR. ERIC VILAIN
Dr. Eric Vilain, Professor of Human Genetics and Director of the Institute for Society and Genetics at UCLA, will lead a brief talk offering insight into the work and life of Forrest Bess from Vilain’s perspective as an expert on intersexuality and the genetics of gender identity. The exhibition, Forrest Bess: Seeing Things Invisible, currently on view at the Hammer, addresses the ways Bess’s personal life and critical exploration of gender affected his artistic practice. Vilain will help us to situate, both historically and scientifically, Bess’s theories on gender as well as the correspondence between Forrest Bess and gender researcher Dr. John Money.
