Event Description

Me Love You Long Time (MLYLT), curated by Edwin Ramoran, is a provocative group exhibition of contemporary art and video by over 50 artists from Southeast Asia and North America who utilize various media and complicated visual strategies to upend or explore gender expression, sexuality, sex work and new subjectivities.

For more than a year, Ramoran travelled Southeast Asia and the U.S., visiting nightclub dwellers, studios, galleries and sex workers in search of artists for MLYLT. Modern life at the intersections of war, sex, gender, film, popular music and contemporary art has provided the generative sources for MLYLT. “This exhibition is all about the construction of identity and unapologetic attitudes about sexuality,” Ramoran explains, “and features art, videos, resources and ephemera from the 1990s to the present that dive into really tough issues.”

Two videos by video artist and emerging performer Zavé Martohardjonoin formation and something dangerous, will be included in the exhibit. For more information, read the press release.
