NYU Global Asia/Pacific Art Exchange — July 8-22, 2013 — Shanghai | Hong Kong | Canberra | Wollongong | Sydney

NYU Global Asia/Pacific Art Exchange

The Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU is launching the first phase of the inter-institutional Global Asia/Pacific Art Exchange from July 8-22, 2013 in Shanghai, China; Hong Kong; and Wollongong, Sydney, and Canberra, Australia, focusing on Asian/Asian diasporic art globally.

The exchange will bring together scholars, curators, and artists from each site and is meant to be generative for research, resulting in publications, exhibition development, and other research-based projects and programs to share and disseminate research, strengthen international networks of scholars and curators, and create ongoing dialogue between international colleagues, arts communities, and wider publics in the US, Asia/Pacific region, EU, Latin America, Africa, and Middle East in the expanding field of Asian/Asian Diasporic Art and Visual Cultures.

Through international site visits, symposia, public dialogues, and ongoing working sessions, the exchange aims to build sustained multi-year inter-institutional and scholarly connections to encourage a broader transnational and comparative diasporic discourse while recognizing the continual importance of local contextualization and place.

Acclaimed for his poignant, bright-colored prints and paintings, award-winning artist Roger Shimomura’s work challenges constructions of the racialized “other” and calls attention to the power of material and pop culture to normalize whiteness. He was born in Seattle, Washington and spent two years of his early childhood in Minidoka (Idaho), one of ten concentration camps for Japanese Americans during World War II. He holds the title of Distinguished Professor of Art Emeritus from the University of Kansas where he taught for 35 years. His work is in the permanent collections of over 85 museums nationwide.

Opening reception at Sylvia Wald and Po Kim Gallery, February 14, 2013, 6PM-8PM

417 Lafayette Street (6 line Astor Place station and N and R lines 8th Street station)

The exhibition brings together a distinguished group of emerging and established artists whose works provoke questions about the everyday of war, the relationships formed and broken by war, the displacements that people must endure because of war, and the inadvertent histories, technologies, and trajectories that arise from the prevalence of war. These projects provoke questions about our relationship to a world permeated by war.

The artists include: Tomie Arai, Allan deSouza, Nancy Hwang, An-My Le, Dinh Q. Lê, Simon Leung, Yoko Ono, Paul Qaysi, Hiroshi Sunairi, and Yoshiaki Kaihatsu.
