Campaign for Change with Chella Man

The Asian American Actor, Model, Artist, YouTuber, and LGBTQ Activist Chella Man joins us in conversation.

Chella Man is an internationally acclaimed artist whose work explores the continuum of identity by deconstructing binaries within and beyond disability, gender, race, sexuality, and morality. His expansive identities as a Deaf, Genderqueer, Trans-Masculine, Jewish and Chinese artist inform a unique perspective that cannot be limited to one medium.

Man blends the genres of fine arts and performance art while simultaneously exploring installation, sculpture, and film directing. Art serves as his visual loophole beyond verbal communication as this is often inaccessible and limiting in expression. He is currently working to build an artist residency at Industry City in Brooklyn, New York after working as a mentor and artist-in-resident at Silver Art Projects located in The World Trade Center this past year.

Most recently, he curated a NYTimes featured show highlighting 14 different disabled artists under the title: Pure Joy at 1969 Gallery. He is the author of Continnum (2021), the director of the award winning film The Beauty of Being Deaf (2021), executive producer of Trans in Trumpland (2021), fashion designer for his collection with Opening Ceremony (2019), Jericho in Titans of DC Universe (2019), former columnist for Them, and Condé Naste’s first LGBTQ+ publication (2018). Man has also worked with institutions such as The Brooklyn Museum, Powerhouse Museum, Performance Space New York, Leslie-Lohman Museum, and The Abrons Arts Center.

This program is made possible by the Alexa Fullerton Hampton ’42 Fund.
