Los Angeles-based filmmaker, performance and visual artist Wu Tsang’s second exhibition with Clifton Benevento (an oasis in the land of mall shopping on Broadway in Soho) centers on an ongoing collaboration with poet and critical theorist Fred Moten. A two-channel video, with each performer in his own monitor, recreates a live performance from 2014 focused on the language of missed encounters. This work, along with two sculptures, riffs on dueling motifs such as language and expression and the drag queen and the mother, continuing Tsang’s explorations into identity formation and “the underground” as a site of cultural resistance.
