Nayland Blake at the New Museum

As part of Trigger: Gender as a Tool and a Weapon, the New Museum will present Nayland Blake: Crossing Object (inside Gnomen). Blake will stage performances in the lobby and third floor of the building on November 11, December 1, December 16, and January 13. All performances will take place from 1 to 5 PM.

Gnomen, a hybrid bear-bison that can change sex and gender, is the “fursona” of artist Nayland Blake. A fursona is an avatar in the furry community, where personal expression is bound up with nonhuman identities and fantasies. Blake will inhabit a life-size suit of Gnomen and make themselves available for encounters with Museum visitors.
