Kristina Wong Performance and Artist Talk
Performance artist and comedian Kristina Wong performs Kristina Wong for Public Office a simultaneous real run for Public Office and performance art piece. Kristina Wong has been running for real political offices and creating an evening long Campaign Spectatular performance/ rally that exploits the theatrics of campaigning and inspires participation in the Democratic process. We live in times where politicians and artists have switched jobs. They now create the spectacle that have us questioning reality and we reclaim the quiet space for social change and truth. As an artist who likes to blur the lines between art and reality, Kristina decided to bring her commentary, vision, and craft to the stage that people are watching more than ever the political stage.

Kristina Wong was featured in the New York Times Off Color series highlighting artists of color who use humor to make smart social statements about the sometimes subtle, sometimes obvious ways that race plays out in America today. She is a performance artist, comedian, writer and elected representative who has been presented internationally across North America, the UK, Hong Kong and Africa.  Shes been a guest on late night shows on Comedy Central and FX, and an actor on film and TV. She starred in her own pilot presentation with Lionsgate for truTV. Her commentaries have appeared on American Public Medias Marketplace, PBS, VICE, Jezebel, Playgirl Magazine, Huffington Post and CNN. Shes been awarded artist residencies from the MacDowell Colony, New York Theater Workshop, the San Diego International Airport and Ojai Playwrights Festival. Her work has been awarded with grants from Creative Capital, The MAP Fund, Center for Cultural Innovation, National Performance Network, a COLA Master Artist Fellowship from the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, as well as eight Los Angeles Artist-in-Residence awards.  Center Theatre Group honored her as the 2019 Sherwood Award recipient for her exceptional contribution to the Los Angeles theatre landscape and her work as an innovative and adventurous artist. Among the numerous immersive theater experiences shes helped create, Kristina recently wrote the script for the Mad Hatter Gin and Tea Party.  Shes created viral web series like How Not to Pick Up Asian Chicks and is in post production on the second season of Radical Cram School.  Her rap career in post-conflict Northern Uganda is the subject of her last solo theater show The Wong Street Journal which toured the US, Canada and Lagos, Nigeria (presented by the US Consulate).  Her long running show Wong Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest looked at the high rates of depression and suicide among Asian American women and is now a concert film.  Her newest performance project is Kristina Wong for Public Office a simultaneous real life campaign for Public Office and performance art piece.  In her most blurry performance piece yet, Kristina currently serves as the elected representative of Wilshire Center Koreatown Sub-district 5 Neighborhood Council.
