With a migratory practice that includes party promoting, activism, community organizing, performance art, installation and filmmaking, Wu Tsang's itinerant creativity is at once multifaceted, adaptable to circumstance, singularly cohesive and spot on. This spring the L .A.-based Wu Tsang will conquer New York with a rare trifecta: a premiere of his feature film Wildness, which documents Los Angeles' legendary LGBT party of the same name, at the Museum of Modern Art as part of their Documentary Fortnight festival; and installations in both the New Museum Triennial and the Whitney Biennial. All this couldn't be happening to a more wonderful person. Wu Tsang's vision can help us all in extending the slippery issues of gender and sexuality into the even more complex zone where race and class further complicate the social dynamic.
