Welcome to the screening of Wildness which is part of the Malmö Konstmuseum symposium LOCATIONS, situated in the public programme of the exhibition (in)visible: abstractions and fragments of queerness, currently showing at the museum. For more information about the event, see here>>
Wildness is a resonant portrait of a Latino Los Angeles LGBT bar, the Silver Platter. The film integrates elements of fiction and documentary structures to vividly portray Tsang’s multi-layered relationship with the bar, one that explores her role as an artist and activist, and a member of a younger generation introducing itself into a gay scene that started before the Stonewall riots – the Silver Platter’s birth year is 1963. The impact of gentrification and a changing city on the bar’s working class, Hispanic and immigrant patrons is something Tsang implicates herself in when the weekly Wildness party brings art world crowds and attention.
Tickets are booked in advance here>> and must be picked up no later than half an hour before the screening starts.
