Kristina Wong
Thurs, Sept 8, 6–9 PM
$5 / FREE for Members

Get ready for a hilarious, provocative, one-night-only event when Kristina Wong “takes over” the Asian Art Museum. In a world where real life literally TRUMPS fiction, what’s the point of performance art? With help from a motley crew of Bay Area personalities, Wong will channel performances by Yoko Ono, Shia LaBeouf and others. She may even reimagine Pokemon GO as a live social(ist) action game.
