Intersectionality NOW presents Christine Dianne Guiyangco, Thinh Nguyen, and Seo Yun Son

Transnational and intersectional perspectives on feminism encompass questions that challenge postcolonial frameworks and scrutinize the destruction carried out by Western imperialism. Intersectionality NOW invites several artists from the Asian diaspora—Christine Dianne Guiyangco, Thinh Nguyen, and Seo Yun Son—to present work exploring global migration, labor, and gender identity.

Christine Dianne Guiyangco is a Los Angeles-based artist. She was born in Philippines in 1992 and moved to United States in 2001. Guiyangco actively works in a range of fields including performance, painting, writing, installation, video, and sculpture. She has exhibited in Space B Gallery, PØST Gallery, UCLA Hillel, New Wight Gallery, Charlie James Gallery, and Angel’s Gate Cultural Center. In 2014, she graduated with Bachelor of Arts at the University of California Los Angeles.

Thinh Nguyen’s work is a complex contemporary look at a few converging issues investigating the personal, social, cultural, and historical while innovatively engaging the public in the process. He explores formal and conceptual process in different media as a strategy to continue the development of critical exchange and aesthetic innovation. He received an MFA at Claremont Graduate University and BFA a California State University, Fullerton.

Seo Yun Son is an artist and educator living in Los Angeles, California. She received her BFA in Fine Arts from the University of California, Los Angeles. As an undocumented immigrant, her practice examines the politics of constructing one’s identity by remapping territory and citizenship as well as the circulation and progression of one’s personal memory and history.

Intersectionality NOW is a collective that believes FEMINISM NOW must be intersectional (we reject hierarchies based on race, class, gender, ability, sexuality, or age) & that it must work to AMPLIFY the most marginalized women & that it must learn to listen and to check its privilege. We want our feminism to be fun but also make us uncomfortable. We want our feminism decolonized, inclusive, and international. With better slogans & cooler signs. Intersectionality NOW is a Coalitions Resident at the WCCW from now until the end of May.
