Artist Nayland Blake will perform The Residue of a Thousand Hugs in conjunction with his installation Knee Deep in the Flooded Victory (2013), commissioned for the Triennial. Part dress-up session, part confessional, part sideshow-turn, his performance will dally with queer history and visual hysteria, while providing everyone present with a guide to what NOT to wear if you hope to be taken seriously.

A Different Kind of Order: The ICP Triennial is on view May 17–September 22.

This event takes place in the museum during voluntary admission hours.
