HUANG PO-CHIH: HEAVEN ON FOURTH

When 14 Nov 2019 - 23 Nov 2019
Where PERFORMA HUB: 47 WOOSTER
47 Wooster Street
New York, NY
United States

For Performa 19, Huang Po-Chih will generate a socially-focused project, engaging with members of the Asian immigrant community in New York. Co-commissioned by the Taipei Fine Arts Museum, the project centers on the story of Song Yang, a Chinese immigrant sex worker who committed suicide in Flushing, Queens in 2017. Following her death, migrant and Asian sex workers across New York City have mobilized to fight for their rights, resulting in a historic bill that could see New York as the first state to decriminalize sex work.

In response to Yang’s death and recent advocacy work by the Red Canary Song–a coalition of migrant massage workers in Flushing and Chinatown–Huang will organize a requiem for Yang that tells her story through multiple narratives in a specially-designed exhibition space and bar.
