What is queer time? What is colored people’s time? And queer people of color time? Crossing, cruising time zones and erogenous zones, this show explores transnational queer Asian bodies through space and time. Queer time challenges standard notions of linear progress and biological time. There is no single, straight-forward model of development (pun intended) but rather a multiplicity of movements and moments. Queer temporalities collapse the binaries of time, sexuality, and progress. The past, present and future is blurred. Gendered divides are re-imagined. First and third worlds meld.
