Month of Sundays

January 15 - February 27

The words "Month of Sundays" in child-like scratch hovers above a much neater font, reading "Anti-Aesthetic / ECA + Tropical Contemporary + Transponder + Oregon Community Foundation."

Eugene Contemporary Art is proud to present Month of Sundays, a group exhibition of the ten artists
who took part in Tropical Contemporary’s Transformation Residency program between 2020–2021:
Carina Borealis, Princess Bouton, Francis Dot, Irene June, Remy Malik, Oliver Myhre, Julia O., Eel
Probably, Pace Taylor, and Ty Warren.

The Transformation Residency, created in partnership with TransPonder and funded through the Oregon
Community Foundation, supported transgender and gender-diverse artists who reside in the state of
Oregon. This residency program aimed to mitigate the social, political, and economic barriers to artistic
creation. To that end, this residency offered financial sponsorship.

While this inaugural residency program was planned and envisioned prior to the conditions under the
COVID-19 pandemic, it took place entirely within its constraints. These artists, in a large part, created
work in isolation from their peers and from each other. A wide range of artistic methodologies and
interests are evident: found object assemblage, large-scale installation, liberatory meditation practices,
reflections on rural gay identity, queer touch, and intimacy. For the first time, this exhibition brings these
artists’ works together within the same time and physical space.

Month of Sundays is co-curated by Tropical Contemporary members Tannon Reckling and Sam
Wrigglesworth. Special thanks to the Oregon Community Foundation and to TransPonder for their

The exhibition will be on view at ANTI-AESTHETIC, 245 W 8th Ave, Eugene OR, from January 14th
