A Place in Time
A Place in Time presents Love Songs and new photographic works by Phuc Le, accompanied by a special screening of Kiss of the Rabbit God by Andrew Thomas Huang, followed by a Q&A with the artists moderated by Jonathan Crisman. Plus, dance ‘til midnight at an after party organized by Jason Wong, featuring a DJ set by Howin Wong!
Le and Huang’s work both highlight the queer/gay Asian American male identity and respond to how their relationships with sexual intimacy have been shaped by the lack of visibility in their childhoods and today. Crisman’s Q&A with the artists will explore the dialogue between their works, themes and aesthetics.
A Place in Time is a confession and love letter to the queer Asian community.
8-10PM: Screening and Q&A
10-12PM: Music by DJ Howin, Exteeng, ReyJake
