Join us for a participatory event to accompany Man as Object: Reversing the Gaze (November 4–30) and try your hand at reversing the gaze. All artistic skill levels and non-artistic observers are welcome. A male model will be drawn from the heightened vantage point of the audience.
The afternoon features a reprise of Chanel Matsunami Govreau’s performance “Hapa Bruthas,” an exploration of Hapa male and Asian male sexuality, brotherhood, and the effects of interracial dating in Asian American communities from a mixed-Asian woman’s perspective.
All drawings created by the audience will be exhibited on site for the event, then taken home by the artists. Please bring your own drawing supplies.

Chanel Matsunami Govreau is performance storyteller and costume designer who uses a combination of sculptural regalia and spoken word to create live narratives and collaborative photo shoots. Her stories are based on her activism as a queer, multiracial, and Asian-American woman. She investigates moments of vanity, emotional indulgence and self-exposure to extract and confront internalized social patterns.
