Event description

Description

The Millitzer Studio & Gallery presents an elegy for Marco, an exhibition of new works by Catalina Ouyang. Through the lens of a second-generation Chinese-American woman, Ouyang navigates identity, desire and the legacy of imperialism. The notion of fetish is central as both spiritual object (talisman, amulet, relic) and sexual proclivity, evoking questions of representation, sanctity, artificiality and objectification. Loaded positionalities interrogate the duality of resistance and self-subjugation: the dilemma of trying to contradict power dynamics in white heteropatriarchy without reinforcing those very tenets. Whiteness is aspiration, fetish, hand of oppression, tool of erasure; an elegy for Marco contends with this violent history by underscoring empathy, consent and the necessity of vulnerability.

This opening reception is free and open to the public, with a performance ongoing from 7-9 PM. Light refreshments will be served.

The show will be on view by appointment through December 30th.
