    A new exhibit of art and photography by Xiangqi Chen, artistin-residence at the Chinese Cultural Center (CCC), opened at the Chinese Queer Museum on Friday, April 12. The museum is located at 41 Ross Alley in Chinatown.

    San Francisco Bay Times photographer Rink attended the opening of the show that will continue through Saturday, June 29. A schedule of additional activities, to be held in conjunction with Chen’s exhibit, will take place through April, May, and June. To be included are films, panel talks, pop-up performances by Chinese queer and feminist artists, and additional exhibits.

    Chen has been a central figure in the LGBTQ+ movement in China for over two decades, and the exhibit at the Chinese Queer Museum represents a new chapter in her activism, brining Chen’s journey and stories to life through the medium of a museum for the first time.
