Asian Art Museum
Kongkee: Warring States Cyberpunk

On view through January 23, 2023

Kongkee, an award-winning animation director and visual artist, takes you back to the future in an odyssey 2,000 years in the making.

Explore an immersive animated futurist fantasy — part comic book, part motion picture — making its dazzling North American debut. Kongkee’s Warring States Cyberpunk traces the legendary Chinese poet Qu Yuan’s soul on a journey from the ancient Chu Kingdom to an imagined 21st century Asia of cyborgs, electro rock, and surprising romantic reunions.

KQED members receive a discount by reserving tickets online and showing their current KQED Member Card on arrival. Use code KQEDKONGKEE for 20% off. Discount is good through 12/30/22.
