The Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA): “Waves of Identity: 35 Years of Archiving” and “Memory Prints: The Story World of Phillip Chen”

Thu, Sep 25, 2014 – Sun, Mar 1, 2015

The Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA) will present its groundbreaking exhibition examining Chinese American identity,Waves of Identity: 35 Years of Archiving. The title of the exhibit was inspired by a Chinese proverb, “Each wave of the Yangtze River pushes at the wave ahead.” As a metaphor for Chinese American history, the waves represent successive generations of immigrants unearthing the histories of those that came before them, and in the process of discovery, addressing pertinent issues of identity, memory and history. To date, MOCA owns the largest Chinese American collection in the United States, featuring over 65,000 artifacts, oral histories, textiles, photographs, and more. The exhibition will highlight the best of its archives and special collections while engaging visitors in a discussion about identity. The Museum will celebrate its 35th year anniversary in January 2015.

  • Thu, Sep 25, 2014 – Sun, Mar 1, 2015

    Memory Prints is a solo exhibition by Phillip Chen, a visual artist from the Midwest. In fifteen relief etchings centering around his family, Chen reckons with significant moments in Chinese American history. At first glance, individually and as an ensemble, these relief prints are schematic and enigmatic. Rooted in personal experiences, the prints depict precisely drawn tools and everyday objects that reflect his family’s occupational histories. The etchings can be approached as part futurist blueprints and part archaeologic shards, each juxtaposed in an almost Rube Goldberg set of relationships and movements. Their rich darkness reveal precisely drawn tools and everyday objects, an occasional human visage. Each array on each print is imaginatively filled in with lines that interlink and interrelate the items.

Brother Lovers

BROTHER LOVERS

 

A fateful glance between two ancient warriors in a modern-day disco club resurrects a 5,000-year-old family tragedy and sparks a tense romance.

BROTHER LOVERS is an experimental play written and directed by Brooklyn-based performance and video artist Zavé Martohardjono. The play reinterprets the Mahabharata to reimagine two mythic heroes in a timeless queer tale of love, exile, and disco.

BROTHER LOVERS will première on Friday July 18 at 9pm and Sunday July 20 at 12pm at the Wild Project at 195 East 3rd Street in the Lower East Side as part of the 2014 Fresh Fruit Festival’s program “All Out Shorts III: Legends Through a Glass Queerly.” The play features a diverse cast of queer dancers and theater artists. Interested in crafting a universal narrative about belonging, displacement, and desire, Martohardjono directs and casts BROTHERS LOVERS with performers interchangeably playing its two main characters. Martohardjono weaves in autobiography and poetic personal reflections on identity as a mixed-race Indonesian-American far from “home” and considers Arjuna and Karna’s parable through a genderqueer and transgender lens.

For tickets, please visit: http://www.freshfruitfestival.com/2014-fresh-fruit-schedule/

Crossing the Hyphen: Recent Works of Pallavi Sharma

May 31- July 9, 2014
Addison Street Windows Gallery
2018 Addison Street
Berkeley, CA
Opening Reception: June 7th – 1pm – 3pm

The Addison Street Windows Gallery proudly presents Crossing the Hyphen: Art by Pallavi Sharma, an exhibition organized by curator, Demetri Broxton. Crossing the Hyphen reinvents recent installations and video art created by Pallavi Sharma. Sharma’s work is a subtle conversation in identity politics in America. Herself an Indian-American, Sharma explores how the hyphen serves a dual role: allowing the new immigrant to acknowledge their national origins while also allowing for a reinvented identity within a new country. Her work explores the blurring of national identities which occurs through the process of naturalization and movement. In her piece Carry-On, a suitcase lies open filled with grass and grass seeds. The work represents both the immigrant and the cultural heritage an immigrant brings with them—seeds to be planted in a new land. The piece poses the question of whether these seeds will always be exotic and separate, or over time will they become integrated into the larger cultural landscape?

Pallavi Sharma was born and raised in India and immigrated to United States in 1997. She received her BFA and MFA from the Faculty of Fine Arts Baroda, India and received her Ph.D. in Art History from India’s National Museum Institute of History of Art and Conservation, New Delhi, India. Pallavi’s work has been exhibited widely at venues including the Queens Museum of Art, Exit Art, Art Asia Pacific, and Bishop Museum. At present, she is a board member ofAsian American Women Artist Association (AAWAA) and Director of ‘Inner Eye Art’ an ArtConsulting Firm specializing in South Asian Art.

Demetrie Broxton is an independent curator. He was born in Oakland, CA and holds an M.A. in Museum Studies from San Francisco State University. Broxton has been curator with the City of Berkeley since February 2014. His past curatorial projects include Past Forward at the Sargent Johnson Gallery and Decoding Identity at Museum of the African Diaspora.

Glenn Kaino: 19.83 at the Studio Museum in Harlem

Kavi Gupta CHICAGO | BERLIN is proud to announce Glenn Kaino’s solo exhibition, Glenn Kaino: 19.83 at the Studio Museum in Harlem, organized by Assistant Curator Naima J. Keith. 19.83 opens on March 27, 2014

GLENN KAINO
19.83

Glenn Kaino: 19.83  is the New York debut exhibition that marks the genesis of Kaino’s ongoing collaboration with Olympian Tommie Smith.

On October 16, 1968, during the medal ceremony for the men’s 200-meter race at the Mexico City Olympic Games, American athletes Tommie Smith and John Carlos raised black-gloved fists as a symbolic act of protest. The gesture, seen around the world and preserved in images that still resonate today, became a catalytic symbol for myriad beliefs, ideas and social causes.

The exhibition consists of two works: Bridge (2013), in the Museum’s atrium, and 19.83, in the Museum’s project space. Bridge, a site-specific intervention composed of gold-painted casts of Smith’s arm, is a reservoir of memories that reflects on the power of the athletes’ gesture nearly four decades after its occurrence. 19.83, the title of both the work here and the exhibition as a whole, refers to Smith’s world record–breaking time in the 200-meter race, 19.83 seconds. The work is a gold-plated sculptural environment that takes the form of a three-level platform reminiscent of the one used to honor Olympic medalists. Together, these works examine the conditions in which symbolic moments enter history, how these circumstances evolve over time, and how memory and history compete for relevance in the present.

Chair: Alice Ming Wai Jim, Concordia University
Panelists:
Richard Fung, OCAD University
Valerie Soe, Asian American Studies Department, San Francisco State University
Beatrice Glow, Independent Artist
Discussant: Alexandra Chang, Asian/Pacific/American Institute, New York University

This panel seeks to think through the spectrum of theoretical and material positions between the hyphen and the slash by focusing on the construct “Asian/Americas,” particularly in relation to praxis and pedagogy. The slash in Asian/Americas challenges traditional notions of hyphenation, suggesting other possibilities for diasporic subjectivity. The plural “Americas” indicates the hemispheric extension beyond North America as well as the notion of multiple Americas. To think of Asian/Americas is to question how diasporic identities can be rendered beyond nation-state, global north-south, third and first world paradigms, beyond divisive dichotomies such as East/West and North/South, and to retain the complexity of the spatial and temporal ways art history, area studies, and Asian Canadian Studies, Asian American and Asian Latin American Studies as well as Caribbean Studies and Pacific Island Studies conceive of the hyphenated play of identities in a transnational world. How can the convergence of these critically precarious positions, political leanings and liberatory praxis intentionally inform, engage and partner with current transformative pedagogies concerning social justice, political power, and the rights to self-representation and self-determination?

Co-sponsored by the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU.

Interlacing Threads: Traditional Techniques/Contemporary Practices
January 27 – March 7, 2014
Opening Reception: February 13, 2014
Columbia College The Hokin Project
623 S Wabash Ave, first floor
Chicago, IL 60605
Opening Reception 5h30-8h30pm

The art of weaving, hand-sewing and similar techniques transcends generations and cultures alike. These ancestral arts help sustain a connection to cultural identities and histories that in recent time have acquired new interpretations in the hands of contemporary practitioners.
Interlacing Threads presents the work of seven artists, who informed by their cultural background and present day lives, incorporate traditional techniques in their creative process to shed light on social and political concerns. Ultimately, their work forges a greater understanding of the similar underpinnings of seemingly disparate cultures.

Curated by Marcela Andrade, MA in Visual Arts Management ’14

“OTHER ASIAS” — CAA panel call for papers — chaired by Susette Min

Other Asias

Susette Min, University of California, Davis. Email: ssmin@ucdavis.edu.

This panel examines how Asia is rendered in and through curatorial
practices beyond nation-state, global north-south, third and first world
paradigms. In contrast to exhibitions that recall nineteenth-century world
exhibitions or present Asia regionally through a narrow scope of natural
disasters, human crises, or ethnic identities, a number of recent
exhibitions –biennials, curatorial collaborations– have envisaged “Asia”
differently. Avoiding dichotomies such as East/West and North/South, the
curatorial structure and selected artworks of these exhibitions
de-territorialize Asia, destabilize the spatial and temporal ways art
history, area studies, and Asian American studies conceive of Asia, and
challenge embedded understandings of modernity and transnationalism. The
panel seeks papers that offer critical reviews or examinations of these
exhibitions, specifically focusing on how they inspire alternative networks
and assemblages that open up new geographies and art histories through
metaphors of connection–archipelago, ocean, rim, port. How might these
connections for example reveal models of South-South art worlds or link
Asia and Africa, Europe, or the U.S. in radically different ways?
