Pleasure Principles

As a historical, temporal, and aesthetic exploration into queer experimental Asian/Pacific cinema, this event on November 4, 2016 brought together four scholars, curators, and artists whose work addresses the subjects of racialized sexual politics, gender transgression, and the possibilities of pleasure within the queer Asian/Pacific imagination. Eve Oishi (Claremont Graduate University), Nguyen Tan Hoang (University of California, San Diego), and Erica Cho (University of California, San Diego) screened and discussed moving image works spanning the past several decades to create new modes of speculation within a lineage of artistic practice and political inquiry.  Curated by Leeroy Kun Young Yang. Moderated by Gayatri Gopinath (NYU Department of Social & Cultural Analysis).
