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
*Developed in the Curatorial Practicum class & mounted by The Hokin Gallery Management Practicum class.

“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?

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.

FRIDAY EVENING TOUR & DINNER:
Friday, February 24, 6pm
Kindly RSVP for the tour/dinner at: achang@nyu.edu

TOUR:

Please join us for a special curator-led tour of the exhibition ’Round the Clock: Chinese American Artists Working in Los Angeles at the Vincent Price Art Museum at East Los Angeles College. Guest curator Sonia Mak will lead an intimate tour of the exhibition, which showcases the work of George Chann, Jake Lee, John Kwok, Milton Quon, and Tyrus Wong, who employed their artistic abilities in their professional lives while remaining true to their own artistic pursuits in their personal lives. The exhibition features more than one hundred works by these Los Angeles-based artists, including paintings, watercolors, preproduction sketches, drawings, photographs, kites, and ephemera. The exhibition considers how these contemporary artists balanced their personal art making and their professional demands; how they achieved success on their own terms in their commitment to making art in Los Angeles; and the significance of their contributions to the region’s artistic and cultural legacy.

Whether or not they were native Angelenos or even American-born, each of these five artists studied and settled in Los Angeles, joined in the war effort of World War II, and participated in multiple communities. They built careers in local creative industries, especially in film and advertising, working both for themselves and for others. In their endeavors, Chann, Kwok, Lee, Quon, and Wong became the beneficiaries and agents of Los Angeles’ burgeoning art community. ’Round the Clock is part of Pacific Standard Time. This unprecedented collaboration, initiated by the Getty, brings together more than sixty cultural institutions from across Southern California to tell the story of the birth of the L.A. art scene.  Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945-1980 is an initiative of the Getty Foundation.

About the Guest Curator: Sonia Mak is a Los Angeles-based independent curator of modern and contemporary art by women artists and artists of color. She was a founding curator at the Chinese American Museum, and has worked at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Autry National Center, and Los Angeles County Arts Commission, and Morono Kiang Gallery. (Photo credit Pete Galindo)


DINNER:
The tour will be followed by a dinner gathering at 8pm at La Serenata di Garibaldi (1842 East 1st Street,  Los Angeles), which will be Dutch treat.
