MOCACITIZEN: Race & Representation: The era of Yellow Peril|2015

Presented by the Museum of Chinese in America. Co-sponsored by the A/P/A Institute at NYU.

How do we envision an alternative to the deeply embedded tradition of yellow perilism in the Western imagination? In conjunction with the launch of the Yellow Peril Digital Archives, please join us in an exploration of the significance of this online collection of anti-Asian images drawn from pop culture ephemera, and how contemporary artists interact with these images to create new expressions of identity, and shape new conversations about race and society. Moderated by Jack Tchen (Founding Director, A/P/A Institute at NYU) and Victoria Loke (Yellow Peril Archive,Editor), with presentations by Dylan Yeats, Hannah Baek, and Ashley Syed, and comments from Yang Chi-hui, Pato Hebert, and Juliet Shen.
