Performance artist and director Maria Yoon discusses the marital expectations of many first- and second- generation Korean-American women when choosing between family and the heart. Her documentary, Maria the Korean Bride, challenges those expectations as Maria documents her cross-country journey as an imagined bride in traditional dress. The project highlights Maria’s marriage “proposals,” interviews with participants, and mock wedding performances. Join us for an evening of conversation with Maria, as she previews her documentary and shares her emotions and the experience of her final “50-state marriage” in New York’s Times Square.
