Three of the Bay Area’s most outrageous and influential queer performance artists take the stage in Timken Hall on the San Francisco campus of California College of the Arts.

Queer performance artists Tina Takemoto, Cecilio Cooper, and Keith Hennessy showcase three exciting perspectives on performance art as it is being defined in the Bay Area—one of the most vibrant scenes in contemporary queer art.

Moderated by Associate Provost Mel Corn (aka Jake Danger), the artists will discuss their work as part of an ongoing series of Queer Conversations on Culture and the Arts (QCCA), organized by the Queer Cultural Center and California College of the Arts.
