LAMAGLearnMeet the Candidate: ‘COLA 2018’ fellow Kristina Wong for Something or Other
Friday, June 22, 7 – 8 PM
After touring the world with original stage and guerrilla performances, COLA 2018 Performing Artist Kristina Wong realized her artful spectacles could no longer compete with the shock of real life. Therefore, Kristina decided to move her performances onto the political stage and run for public office before 2030 or when the country implodes (whichever comes first).
Following Kristina’s first mock debate at the art space Human Resources LA, this night was another experiment in further crafting a political narrative for Kristina and her intent to run for public office.
