Utopia of the Neutral – January 2018
At a 2017 speech, Pope Francis denounced new gender affirming technologies, saying that the advancements are a risk to the creation of new life. Francis criticized this “utopia of the ‘neutral’”, and called for the Church to “do her part” in the “true cultural revolution that lies on the horizon.”
Cabal’s “Utopia of the Neutral” was a group exhibition, inspired by the fearful warnings from institutional relics of the modern age, offering Denver trans and non-binary artists a venue to address gender norms through art & music.

“When Pope Francis derogatorily took on the culture of modern gender-reassignment technologies and deemed them a part of a “utopia of the neutral” in a 2017 speech, Denver artist and Cabal Gallery member Mar Williams decided to strike back.”
