Dream Babes is a long term project initiated by artist Sin Wai Kin that explores science and speculative fiction as a productive strategy of queer resistance. Dream Babes NY: Bodies Holding Many Stories invited attendees to share in an intimate setting at AAAinA a story that greatly influenced their work and/or life. The story could take any form and be authored by anyone. In this workshop, participants shared a wide range of stories that were alternatively prompted by a poem, a tattoo, a music video, a book, or a work of art.

Sin Wai Kin (fka Victoria Sin, b. 1991, Toronto, CA) is an artist using speculative fiction within performance, moving image, writing and print to interrupt normative processes of desire, identification, and objectification. Drawing from close personal encounters of looking and wanting, their work presents heavily constructed fantasy narratives on the often unsettling experience of the physical within the social body.

Dream Babes NY: Bodies Holding Many Stories is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
