Visibility & Remembrance: Standing with the Trans* Community is an international art exhibit that centers trans* people as it invites artists to create and submit work that stands in solidarity with the trans* community.
The exhibit was open from November 17, 2021 to April 1, 2022; these dates were chosen to honor two annual international events – Transgender Day of Remembrance (November 20) and Transgender Day of Visibility (March 31).

The exhibit celebrates and makes trans* people’s experiences more visible as we seek to combat their exclusion and erasure from various aspects of society, while we also remember the courage and resilience members of the trans* community have shown in the face of various institutions and systems of oppression. 

Visibility & Remembrance asks artists to reflect on the experiences, representations, identities, and/or politics of being trans*. The thirty-three artists selected for the exhibit reflect a diversity of perspectives and experiences from nine countries – Canada, France, Germany, India, Nigeria, Poland, Switzerland, the United States, and the United Kingdom. Their work includes two-dimensional and three-dimensional art, film, and poetry. 
The in-person exhibit is now closed, but most of the artwork remains here in the virtual exhibit.
