During APA Heritage Month and Pride Month, CCC proudly presents the newest edition of the 41 Ross Artist-in-Residence, featuring queer artist-activist Xiangqi Chen. For more than 20 years, Chen has played a pivotal role in shaping the narrative and progress of the LGBTQI+ movement in China.

Chen will transform 41 Ross into the "OUT/出 MUSEUM," a Chinese queer museum prototype with the dream of realizing an institution that will collect, safeguard, and showcase China's queer movement, art, and stories. For a growing queer Chinese diasporic community, "OUT | 出" means to come out and be proud, while also alluding to the complicated realities of "getting out" of somewhere–whether driven by fear or by hope.

From April 11 to June 29, 2024, the "prototype museum" will be the home to Chen’s personal collection, featuring an exhibition, films, panel talks, and a series of pop-up performances by Chinese queer and feminist artists. Learn More.

There will be light refreshments and an artist sharing, honoring the power that shapes our global LGBTQ+ community.
