Event Description

Presented by: Asian American Women Artists Association, Asian Pacific Islander Cultural Center & The 16th Annual United States of Asian America Festival

The exhibition is curated by Inson Choy. Guest jurors included Jay Xu, Ph.D., Director, Asian Art Museum of San Francisco and Mary-Ann Milford, Ph.D., Professor of Art History, Mills College.

Celebrate the opening reception of underCurrents & the Quest for Space, a multidisciplinary arts exhibition and discussion investigating the space occupied by Asian America, socially, artistically and physically. Asian American artists exhibit work that detonates a discourse on the under-discussed issues impacting Asian Americans, interrogates the myth of “model minority,” and acknowledges the multiple ways contemporary Asian American communities address and subvert stereotypes, discrimination and invisibility. This multi-media, multi-disciplinary arts exhibition aims to identify and contemplate the political implications of what lies below the surface, while exploring possibilities to move beyond, reinventing history and artistically predicting an unrestrained future.
