Ka-Man Tse is the winner of the 2014 Robert Giard Foundation Fellowship, awarded in partnership with the Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies at the City University of New York. The fellowship, which supports art that explores sexuality and gender identity, comes with a $7,500 award. It was presented at the annual benefit on May 21, where the guest of honor was novelist Michael Cunningham.
Tse received the fellowship for her project Portraits and Narratives of LGBTQ Asians and Asian-Americans in the U.S. and Hong Kong. The award will allow Tse to travel to her native Hong Kong to continue the project.
