Join us for a participatory event to accompany Man as Object: Reversing the Gaze (November 4–30) and try your hand at reversing the gaze. All artistic skill levels and non-artistic observers are welcome. A Hapa male model will be drawn by the heightened vantage point of the audience. Please bring your own drawing supplies.
All drawings created by the audience will be exhibited on site for the event, then taken home by the artists. The afternoon features a reprise of Chanel Matsunami Govreau’s performance “Hapa Bruthas,” an exploration of Hapa male and Asian male sexuality, brotherhood, and the effects of interracial dating in Asian American communities from a mixed-Asian woman’s perspective.
When & Where
SOMArts Cultural Center
Insurrection, Connection & Community Through the Arts
SOMArts cultivates access to the arts within the Bay Area by collaborating with community-focused artists and organizations. Together, we engage the power of the arts to provoke just and fair inclusion, cultural respect, and civic participation.
Founded in 1979, SOMArts embraces the entire spectrum of arts practice and cultural identity, and it is beloved in San Francisco as a truly multicultural, community-built space where cutting-edge events and counterculture commingle with traditional art forms.
When a SOMArts produced event is ticketed, you can buy it here on EventBrite. SOMArts frequently hosts independent productions that manage advance tickets separately, so you may be directed elsewhere from an event page.
