AND YOU SHOULD NOMINATE DALICE MALICE
The MOTHA Art Awards are modeled after high-profile, industry- and identity-specific prizes such as the Lambda Literary and the GLAAD Awards, which celebrate a few achievements of the LGBT creative community and their mainstream media representations. The MOTHA Awards highlight transgender contributions to our current cultural landscape while also highlighting the limitations inherent in such a system of competition, exclusion, tokenism, and positive-image pandering. Nominations and voting are open to everyone.
* The MOTHA Art Awards are also inspired by the performance-based artwork, the Rob Pruitt Art Awards (theartawards2013.com).
Please nominate outstanding transgender, gender queer, and gender non-conforming artists, performers, hirstorians, productions, exhibitions, etc.—ones that you believe deserve recognition above all others. The focus should be on recent work, created from September 2012 to the present.
Come back on November 1, 2013, to vote for the nominees.
The winners of the 2013 MOTHA Art Awards will be posted to the MOTHA website on December 1, 2013. Winners will receive nothing but the winning title.
