Why were you interested in bringing a new piece of identity-based art to Smith’s campus? Identity-based art is really exciting, especially when you think about it in the context of Smith College. This is such a great place because it’s so diverse, and there are so many different kinds of people here. Questions of identity are so relevant on our campus, especially being a women’s college that’s very in touch with queer and trans narratives. She Gone Rogue will be the first work in the museum’s collection by a self-identified trans artist. Why was it important for you to have the museum include the work of trans artists? After I saw the video I was thinking about SCMA’s collection and the content of it, and it seemed like there were no trans artists or trans narratives happening in the museum space. When I looked into it more I found out that the museum didn’t even have any self-identified trans artists in the collection and I think that’s a total gap in our collection. I believe the museum should reflect all members of the Smith College community. As of [May] 2015, Smith now accepts applications from all self-identified women, which is so exciting and necessary but also an acceptance that needs to be extended to the museum. SCMA’s Video & New Media Gallery is a new addition to the museum, having opened in the fall of 2015. How does the piece’s medium contribute to its importance to the museum’s collection? The artist Candice Breitz came to Smith, and in her lecture, when she was talking about SCMA, she was saying how exciting it was that Smith’s museum is committed to collecting interesting new media art. I think that’s something so unique—that we’re building this amazing collection of contemporary work that is media-based and really explores topics so relevant to our campus and our larger community.
