About:  “Great minds think differently — join us for the new series TAKEOVER and see the world through the eyes of a visionary. Honorees have been chosen to seize the moment, and the museum, to share their ideas and influences in a one-night-only event. Kristina Wong plans to TAKEOVER the Asian Art Museum with a hilarious, provocative, one-night-only event. In a world where real life literally TRUMPS fiction, what’s the point of performance art? With help from a motley crew of Bay Area personalities, Wong aims to reinterpret history’s most infamous performance artworks.
