Exposure: Politics, Sex, and Power

Rokudenashiko, a feminist Japanese manga artist making colorful models of her vagina, Ali Asgar, an LGBTQ+ Bangladeshi performance artist, and revolutionary Iranian singer-songwriter Mohsen Namjoo, the “Bob Dylan of Iran” (New York Times), will explore politics, gender and identity, and discuss their experiences facing persecution for their creative expression. The conversation will be moderated by Alexandra Munroe, Guggenheim Senior Curator for Asian Art. We will also enjoy some music by Mohsen Namjoo, and the event will be followed by a reception.
