About this exhibition

Winnie Truong is known for intricate coloured-pencil and chalk drawings and mesmerizing animations that transgress biological norms and explore the fringes of reality from a feminist perspective. In this public installation, Truong’s most recent animation, The Trade, will appear in the Owens Art Gallery’s picture window from dusk until dawn. This exhibition is accompanied by a special online presentation of the artist’s earlier animations.
