TEMPLE TATTLE – Generating Gender

Post 39 of 157

GENERATING GENDER – Tuesday, April 10 at 6:30 p.m.

Featuring Temple Artist Drew Austin and Queer/Trans Political Operative Jack Teter

Beginning the evening of April 9th, Temple Artist Drew Austin will live-stream* the creation of a mural in PlatteForum’s gallery. Using his improvisational style of mark-making, Austin’s piece will also focus on concepts of masculinity and constructs of identity. The following evening, on April 10th, a lively discussion of the completed mural will ensue, with both Drew Austin and Jack Teter leading the critical discussion.

*Note: Austin’s mural creation session will be able to be viewed through PlatteForum’s FaceBook live-feed: https://www.facebook.com/PlatteForum/


Our artists have juicy secrets that they want to share with you…

Introducing Temple Tattle, PlatteForum’s second annual offering, in which we pair-up creatives from The Temple with the rabble-rousing change agents of our great city to show how we can make socially just communities through art. Our Tattle Tales present varying approaches in art and culture, on how to create an equitable society by challenging injustice and valuing diversity.

PlatteForum is proud to be the anchor agency of The Temple, a contemporary artists’ haven in the River North Art District of Denver, home to more than 30 professional artists and creative businesses.
