For the final Saturday of Ghosts of the Machine, curator Elliott Ramsey will lead a guided tour of the exhibition, featuring a new piece of live performance art by The Darlings. The Darlings will inhabit the immersive installations of Ghosts of the Machine for one afternoon only, responding in real time to the works on view.
The Darlings are a multidisciplinary, nonbinary drag performance collective based in Vancouver, BC. Their work challenges the boundaries of conventional drag, and explores genderqueer, nonbinary, and transgender experience through the use of movement, poetry, performance art, theatre, and immersive/interactive installation. The Darlings are: Continental Breakfast (Chris Reed), PM (Desi Rekrut), Rose Butch (Rae Takei), and Maiden China (Kendell Yan).
