Timothy Greenfield-Sanders started working on his List series over 10 years ago. Starting with The Black List, a documentary film exploring race, identity and achievement in the African-American community. The Black List volume 1 was followed by volume 2 and 3 and once finished demanded an even broader reach to capture stories from other marginalized communities. The Latino List, The Out List and The Women’s List were realized. By the interviews, portraits, films, museum shows and books made within this project The List series offers a deeply captivating meditation on race, gender, class, sexuality and ethnicity.
At Wetterling Gallery you will be presented to Timothy Greenfield-Sanders latest work in the List series – The Trans List. The exhibition includes 11 portraits of transgender Americans and also a documentary film produced for HBO. The persons portrayed share their insights on trans rights, the fight for equality, and their personal struggles and accomplishments.
