Kenneth Tam’s videos and sculptures locate vulnerabilities within normative conceptions of masculinity. The screening will present several videos in which Tam reimagines the spaces and rituals that give rise to ideas about the male body and its performance. The screening will be followed by a discussion with the artist.

This screening is part of the series Upstream, which features programs that offer novel ideas and unusual provocations.
