Separated into three parts, Model Actor, Sensitive Male uses performance, essay, and conversation to address the topic “sensitive male.” It begins with a photo- and image-based performance by Jaz Halloran, followed by Steffanie Ling reading an original short essay in response. The presentation concludes with a panel of artists who respond informally and conversationally to images and video, moderated by Halloran.
