Because of your valuable contributions to the field of Asian American art, I am requesting 5 -10 minutes of your time to complete a questionnaire that surveys your experience(s) of bringing Asian American art to the public. If you chose to remain anonymous, your identity will not be released to the public. All participants will be consulted if the data is to be used in a manner other than specified.
I am interested in studying how Asian American art is available in institutional and non-instutitonal settings by capturing the changing landscape of Asian American art practitioners’, scholars’, critics’, administrators’, and viewers’ experiences over the past 20 years. By recording, analyzing and discussing this information, my hope is that this research helps to preserve, learn, grow and celebrate Asian American culture and its contributions to U.S. society.
This research project was designed as part of the University of California Institute for Research in the Arts, “State of the Arts” annual conference. A tabulation of this research will be shared through a panel, “Assessing Asian American art and its Institutional Spaces,” at this year’s conference, “Future Tense: Alternative Arts and Economies in the University,” held at the University of California, San Diego, November 18-21, 2010. If you would like to attend the conference please notify me with your name and attendance date(s) and you will be added to the guest list. Your participation is deeply appreciated!
Thank you for your time and consideration.
Krystal R. Hauseur
OVERVIEW: I have broken the questionnaire into four sections: first, to share my rationale for doing this research; second, a background of influential scholars whose work I am building on; third, instructions to clarify my use of terms; and, finally, the actual questionnaire. You may skip to any, or all, of the first three sections to immediately begin taking the questionnaire (Section 4).
