Opening Friday, April 12th, from 7:30PM - 9PM
Salon Series at Evanston Art Center, curated by Carol Solberg Moss, is excited to present Ada Cheng’s second solo performance Breaking Rules, Broken Hearts: Loving across Borders.
This performance tackles issues on gender, culture, and feminism. I explore how one learns about love and abuse across borders. The materials are pertinent to current debates on gender equality.
