TRANS/PORTAL is a one time, all-ages, interdisciplinary electronic popup exhibition celebrating LGBTQIA+ electronic music artists and the power of interactive media.
The UN/TUCK COLLECTIVE specializes in merging the magical with the mundane, the technological with the natural. The “PORTAL” in TRANS/PORTAL is a gateway, separating the outside world, the “known” environment of Washington Square Park, and an experience that cannot be captured or expressed with words. Let yourself pass through this gateway into a fantastic realm of radical self-expression and personal liberation. At sundown, a new life will strike down into the very core of Washington Square Park: electronic musicians, DJs, color lighting, projection mapping, live painting, installations, and dance. The music will feature live hardware and DJ sets from top artists on the UN/TUCK roster while the visuals will include projection mapping collaborations with other queer visual artists in the Kansas City community.
By bringing together artists of various mediums, this event hopes to create an immersive display of queer/trans artistry, while building an engaging, public facing and community-minded event.
This event will take place on Saturday, August 17 at 6 p.m. in Washington Square Park. The rain date for this event will be August 24, same time and place.
