Join us for the launch of Joon Oluchi Lee’s 94 (Publication Studio).
 
94 is a cameo of a novel, a miniature portrait made in relief, existing daintily between the second and third dimensions. Who sat for the portrait: a 19-year old boy in 1994, going to college in the South, gay and Asian, who will become female by 2014. The Stuff into which the portrait was carved: the feelings aroused by boys he desired, the feelings he wanted to have; feelings that are historically specific, that are products of a specific moment in time, space, and cultural evolution, when those days of innocence were actually defined by more manipulation, heartlessness and cruelty than today.
 
Joon Oluchi Lee is the author of Lace Sick Bag (Publication Studio Portland, 2013) and “The Joy of the Castrated Boy” (Social Text, F/W 2005). His writing and textual performances can be found on girlscallmurder.com and lipstickeater.blogspot.com. He is Associate Professor of Gender Studies and Creative Writing at Rhode Island School of Design.
