About the work
Wu Tsang
American, b. 1982
Follow

Filmmaker, installation artist, activist, and performer Wu Tsang produces artwork that addresses issues in the transgender and LGBT community. Her work interrogates themes of gender identity, social spaces, and the tension between film and art. In 2012, she produced the film Wildness, which focused on the weekly performance-art dance parties of the same name and featured vignettes of marginalized gay and transgender communities. Says the artist, “For me performance is like research; lived experience is fundamental. I have to do these things to understand or have any critical analysis.” Tsang was featured in the 2012 Whitney Biennial and New Museum Triennial, and the 2014 edition of the Hammer Museum’s biennial exhibit “Made in L.A.”
