Mohr invited celebrated performer and activist Julie Tolentino to lead this year's residency. Tolentino in turn invited artists Laura Arrington, Xandra Ibarra, Maurya Kerr and Amara T. Smith to work with her, naming the group "The Hardcorps." "This residency asks each of us as the artists to engage in a meaningfully slow process," said Tolentino. "We want to explore what happens when the processes are slowed down.'...Butler, whose 1990 book Gender Trouble introduced the notion of "gender as performance," the idea that gender isn't something we are but an activity we do, will share the stage in conversation with Jenkinson, the first and only cis-woman to win a major drag pageant.'
