Music played on today's show:

Part Time Woman, by Vivek Shyraya and Queer Songbook Orchestra. Shraya will be performing with Anna Vo in conjunction with BETWEEN., this Friday at the Art Museum. 

"BETWEEN. highlights artists working within the queer and trans diaspora, and the unique voices coming from between or beyond the binary. This exhibition aims to queer the curatorial process, taking into account current visibility politics and presenting the work of LGBTQIA2S+ artists in ways that challenge normative art world conventions. The exhibiting artists explore narratives of identity ranging from personal observation and portraiture to performative spaces of transformation and fantasy.  BETWEEN. aims to foreground narratives that exist within, around, under and/or in opposition to the patriarchal hierarchy present in art institutions."
