Whiskey Chow

Whiskey is a London-based artist, activist and Chinese dragking. Her practice engages with broadly defined political issues, covering a range of related topics: from queer masculinity, problematising the nation-state across geographic boundaries, to stereotypical projections of Chinese/Asian identity. Her work is interdisciplinary, combining performance, moving image, experimental sound, installation, and performative printmaking.
As an artist-curator, Whiskey launched, led-curated and performed in ‘Queering Now 酷兒鬧’ in 2020 (as part of Chinese Arts Now Festival). 'Queering Now' is a curatorial programme amplifying marginalised voices of the queer Chinese/Asian diaspora in the West.
In addition to teaching at the Royal College of Art, Whiskey is also a Guest Lecturer at Sotheby’s Institute of Art.
Whiskey has been involved in feminist and LGBTQ activism in China since 2011. She contributed to and performed in ‘For Vaginas’ Sake 將陰道獨白到底 (2013)’ (original Chinese version of The Vagina Monologues), and curated the first Chinese LGBTQ music festival, ‘Lover Comrades Concert 愛人同志音樂會 (2013)’, Guangzhou.
