Featuring innovative work by a diverse group of media artists, Exploding Lineage explores the complexities of identity construction in African, Asian, and Latin@ queer diasporas. Curated for the 25th MIX NYC queer experimental film festival, the program includes KB Boyce’s Bulldagger Women and Sissy Men, a tribute to queer artists of the Harlem Renaissance, and Celeste Chan’s Bloodlines, a lyrical recognition of Chinese immigrants detained on Angel Island due to the Chinese Exclusion Act. These selections question conventions, bringing to light queer contributions to the American past while asserting a vibrant existence in the present.
