Mulan, Make Up!

Mulan, Make Up! (轉世花木蘭), a queer exhibition curated by artist Yu Cheng-Ta (余政達) and organized by Taiwan Academy in Los Angeles (洛杉磯臺灣書院), delivers perspectives on body politics and highlights nakedness of gender fluid through visual art and performance.
The special screening and performance party of Mulan, Make Up! features several experimental short films created by artists Tzuan Wu (吳梓安, Taiwan), Chen Guan-Hong (陳觀鴻, Taiwan), London-based Victoria Sin (UK), and the artistic duo Watermelon Sisters created by Ming Wong (黃漢明,Singapore) and Yu Cheng-Ta (余政達, Taiwan). These works examine the complex ideas of cultural, political and social movements through a queer prism.
