What's a Performance Artist to Do
When a Political Reality is Weirder than Art?
From creating a critically acclaimed one-woman show about depression and suicide among Asian-American women, to being blocked on Twitter by President Trump and the entire Trump family, to staging immersive theatre in a Manhattan hotel room using ASU Honors students as historical reenactors, to creating a popular Youtube series on how not to pick up Asian chicks, to a very public attempt to marry NBA star Jeremy Lin, to becoming a HipHop star in Uganda, to…running for political office in California???...Kristina Wong has proven to be one of the most dynamic and hilarious performance artists of her generation.
