Remote Intimacies is a series of new and experimental performances created specifically for online viewing and commissioned and co-organized with ONE Archives in Los Angeles and the Museum. Debuting October 7 on Zoom, the invited artists will explore how to sustain intimacy in these highly mediated times and how to imagine opportunities for communion across temporal and geographic distances. The series takes its title from scholar Karen Tongson’s theory on the powerful resonance of shared consumption and their capacity to “bring people, things, and concepts together, even if space and time dictates their dispersal and isolation." Participants include Brontez Purnell (October 7); Joseph Liatela (November 18); and Mikki Yamashiro (December 16). Additional artists for the spring Remote Intimacies program will include Lukaza Branfman-Verissimo and Young Joon Kwak.

Exhibition Date: October 7, 2020 - May 1, 2021
