Desiree in Performa 11 – November 18 & 19

Performer and Filmmaker Wu Tsang

The new Visual Art Performance Biennial returns to NYC with a fantastic new piece conceived and directed by Los Angeles-based artist Wu Tsang with Travis Chamberlain of the New Museum: Full Body Quotation.

The piece is a deconstruction of interviews from the seminal Queer/Trans documentary “Paris is Burning”. Major figures from the documentary on New York City’s Ballroom Circuit, including documentarian Jennie Livingston herself are celebrated, scrutinized, paired with and pitted against each other to call into question the authenticity of narrative, self-presentation, and intention.

Oh yeah, I’m in it. And I’m FABULOUS!

This Friday & Saturday November 18 & 19 @7PM
