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.
