Wu Tsang: visionary company

Hundreds of independent art and museums spaces are forced to close again due to the Corona-Crisis. In this series we are celebrating the fantastic artistic events that are right now sitting behind closed doors, when they actually could contribute to a better climate in times of crisis and political polarization. Lafayette Anticipations shows a solo exhibition by filmmaker and performance artist Wu Tsang.

visionary company is an exhibition of films and performance projects produced by or in collaboration with the artist Wu Tsang. Tsang is a film and theatre director, visual artist and performer. Her practice is deeply collaborative, most frequently associated with the performance group she co-founded in 2016 with artist Tosh Basco, known as Moved by the Motion. Moved by the Motion is a “roving band” of interdisciplinary artists, including experimental cellist Patrick Belaga, dancer Josh Johnson, electronic musician Asma Maroof, and poet Fred Moten.*

Wu Tsang is a filmmaker and performance artist who combines documentary and narrative techniques with fantastical detours into the imaginary in works that explore hidden histories, marginalized narratives, and the act of performing itself. Tsang re-imagines racialized, gendered representations beyond the visible frame to encompass the multiple and shifting perspectives through which we experience the social realm.
