DESCRIPTION

If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, where are the lines between art, kitsch and pornography? If beauty is only skin deep, is race skin deep as well? Join artist Việt Lê  in a conversation about the controversial politics of looking—and the gorges of looking gorgeous—through the lenses of camp, desire, loss and capital gains.
