彳亍而行,冀盼是次展覽可以成為一股酷兒的動力—流動不定、曖昧不明、柔而不破。 Become an energy of queer powers — to be fluid, to exist in liminality, and to bend but not break.

About this event

WMA很榮幸與舊金山中華文化中心聯合策劃題為「WOMEN我們」的展覽系列。「WOMEN我們」於2011年上海首次舉辦,是當時中國首個探討女性主義和酷兒特質的展覽。它一語雙關地點出以「女性」及「我們」為要旨,代表主體性與歸屬感,聚焦女性主義、性別多元化及性/別平等議題。

橫跨數月的展覽將以對話形式分兩個章節呈現。第一章「女也彳亍」由梁凱瑤策展,以6位當代藝術家 — 陳漢聲黃孟雯權希樹Madeleine Lim潘浩欣TT Takemoto — 的作品,致力呈現「酷兒的心境和狀態」。展覽展示一個非二元的世界觀,能怎樣對充斥四周、看似平直和堅固的對立觀點,提出新的問題,並開始了解我們世界的本質其實是酷兒的 — 流動不定、曖昧不明、柔而不破。

WMA is honoured to present the ‘WOMEN 我們’ series with San Francisco Chinese Culture Center (CCC). Inaugurated in 2011 Shanghai, ‘WOMEN我們’ (a Mandarin homophone meaning both ‘women’ and ‘we’) curated by Abby Chen was the first exhibition to address feminism and queerness in China at the time. It represents agency and belonging and focuses on issues such as feminism, gender diversity, and sexual equality.

This exhibition will be presented as a two-phase dialogue – Phase One will be an adaptation of the series’s latest iteration, From Her to Here, curated by Hoi Leung. Brings together works by 6 multidisciplinary artists, Chen Han Sheng, Huang Meng Wen, Heesoo Kwon, Madeleine Lim, Nicole Pun, TT Takemoto to embody a "queer state of mind”. The exhibition suggests how a nonbinary approach towards navigating the world lends to new questions about the seemingly straight and rigid dicotomies that surround us. Discovering the nature of our world is an energy of queer powers — to be fluid, to exist in liminality, and to bend but not break.

策展人簡介 About the Curator

梁凱瑤近期的策展項目包括:Sofía Córdova的「破曉歌聲 iii: 這裏沒有的水果」(2021),一個跨年的實驗錄像計劃,聚焦六位灣區女性來到美國的難民故事;台灣聲音藝術家洪梓倪的場域特定個展「歸・巡」(2020),探索三藩市獨特的城市歷史。梁氏的下一個項目是Cathy Lu的個展「烏托花園」(2022年初),將以陶瓷為本的大型裝置作品,探索亞裔移民在美國的尋夢和反烏托邦狀態。

Hoi Leung is a Hong Kong-born, San Francisco-based, curator with a deep sensitivity to neighbourhood dynamics in her curatorial approach. As Chinese Culture Center’s curator, she oversees the center’s exhibitions, public art interventions, and multi-year community-based projects.

Her upcoming project is Cathy Lu’s Interior Garden (early 2022), a major solo exhibition of large-scale ceramic-based installations exploring the dream and dystopian states of Asian America.

舊金山中華文化中心簡介 About Chinese Culture Center of San Francisco

中華文化中心隸屬舊金山中華文化基金會,是於1965年成立的非營利性機構。中華文化中心致力於提升未得到充分支持的社區地位,並通過教育與當代藝術為平等發聲。在創造新的、當代的敘事和激發不同觀眾之間的對話時,詰問中心在積極重構文化,塑造舊金山的藝術景觀,並推動各種轉型中所扮演的角色。根植於舊金山華埠,為倡導積極性,韌性和健康社區的藝術家提供安全的環境。在此過程中,轉變主流敘事,賦予變革權力,並重新構想共同未來。

Chinese Culture Center of San Francisco (CCC) is a non-profit arts organisation in San Francisco established in 1965. The mission of the CCC is dedicated to elevating underserved communities and giving voice to equality through education and contemporary art. In creating new, contemporary narratives and sparking dialogue amongst diverse audiences, it interrogates the role of a cultural center to boldly reframe culture, shape the arts landscape of San Francisco, and motivate transformation. Rooted in Chinatown, it provides a safe environment for artists who champion activism, resiliency, and healthy communities. In doing so, it shifts dominant narratives, empowers change, and reimagines the future.
