Martin Wong. Malicious Mischiefs
Poetically weaving together narratives of queer existence, marginal communities, and urban gentrification, US-Chinese artist Martin Wong (1946–1999) is recognized for his depictions of social, sexual, and political scenographies from the American 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. Wong stands out as an important countercultural voice at odds with the art establishment’s reactionary discourse at the time. Martin Wong: Malicious Mischief is also the title of an exhibition initiated by KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin, curated by Krist Gruijthuijsen and Agustín PérezRubio, and produced in collaboration with Museo Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo (CA2M), Camden Art Centre, and Stedelijk Museum.
