The work invites conversations about joy and pleasure while reflecting on the ongoing legacies of gendered, anti-Asian violence in a white supremacist society. Love Me Long Time recasts those often depicted as flattened tropes as active subjects, rewriting their own narratives of desire. Instead of resolute answers, the project offers an impermanent archive, where Asian women and nonbinary people are free to hold their own ambiguous truths.
“In this iteration of Love Me Long Time, I explore what it means to deepen relationships with collaborators over time; to question power dynamics between photographer and photographed; to consider what it means to see and be seen as you are.” – Dorcas Tang 邓佳颖
The exhibition restructures contemporary art exhibitions as sites of mutual support and learning through intimate panel talks, reading groups, and educational programming. Through a practice fueled by participatory engagement and reciprocity of care, Dorcas invites discussions around intimacy and loss, exemplifying bonds within the Asian community.
