A/PUBLIC : a group show of femme / queer Asian artists, is a convening of artists of a particular community, not only calling upon shared identity, but also assembling toward differential cultural learning and political processing; same cities, component archives. Here, at the Kelly Writers House, we mark a space and time to call for our audience, share our practice, test our designations, and navigate what onward looks like to us. Up for discussion, by and for us: How to bear illegible and erasable archives into a future? How to tease the topos of diaspora into local entity? How to make together for each other?
A/PUBLIC, on show through the beginning of March, will feature painting, prints, and videowork from 15 Philadelphia/New York artists. Also available for critical browsing: a temporary library of the artists’ collected books & ephemera, and a print object of texts from local artists, writers, and kin. This public program — featuring a lecture by JOAN OH, a reading by OKI SOGUMI, a video screening by EVA WǑ, and a performance by MAYA YU ZHANG — will open with a reception at 7PM.
