Event description

BAMPFA Chief Curator Christina Yang considers new practices of feminist care and museology in the 21st century. Seen through Yang's career arc of interdisciplinary practice and intersectional knowledge-making, the talk will explore practical and philosophical learnings as curators rethink power and community. Yang addresses today's urgency for arts professionals, emerging scholars, and intergenerational artists alike to work together as civic agents for change. 

Christina Yang has held curatorial positions at the Williams College Museum of Art, Guggenheim Museum, The Kitchen, and Queens Museum of Art. She has overseen over 1,000 exhibitions, public programs, workshops, screenings, and artist projects, specializing in global conceptualism, new media, performance, social practice, and experimental dance. Her commissioned essay "How To Do Things With Cameras" is featured in Eikoh Hosoe (MACK Books, Yasufumi Nakamori, editor, 2021). She is a Ph.D candidate in Performance Studies at NYU, former performance reviews editor (2017-20) and member of the editorial collective Women + Peformance, A Journal of Feminist Theory.
