(Photo of Tuesday and interviewer Michelle). Tuesday Smillie is a visual artist whose work grapples with power and violence. In this interview, Tuesday recounts her coming out in a radical queer youth scene in Portland, Oregon, moving to NYC to pursue her art practice, and the growth of attention on her work since her work's appearance in the 2016 show Triggered at the New Museum. She discusses her art practice at some length, reflecting on it both being embedded in the legacy of radical trans movement, and its gesture away from trans identity and Tuesday's own personal experience as a trans woman.
