Street Royalty 2003

 

STREET ROYALTY was a live performance and monumental artwork by Doran George specially commissioned by The Netherlands Transgender Film Festival in collaboration with Crossbreed to create a temporary sculptural form using Bret Parker’s body. The name “Street Royalty” refers to the slang “Street Queen” which academic Susan Stryker cited as an important historical root of contemporary transgender culture. The sculpture offered a point of contemplation for the experiences of vulnerability and acts of strength that are integral to the lives of transgender people.
