ADVA Launch: Challenging Hegemony within the South Asian Diaspora
- Organizer: A/P/A Institute at NYU
- Venue: Hilton Chicago
720 South Michigan Avenue
Chicago, IL United States
Sponsored by the Asian/Pacific/American Institute.
A/P/A Institute at NYU sponsors a reception at the College Art Association Annual Conference to celebrate the release of “Challenging Hegemony within the South Asian Diaspora,” the Fall 2019 issue of the Asian Diasporic Visual Cultures and the Americas (ADVA) journal (Brill Publishing in collaboration with the A/P/A Institute at NYU and Gail and Stephen A. Jarislowsky Institute for Studies in Canadian Art at Concordia University).
Guest edited by artist and curator Jaishri Abichandani, Santhi Kavuri Bauer (San Francisco State University), and writer and educator Anuradha Vikram, the issue addresses the borderless and diasporic condition of South Asians around the globe in opposition to the statist and religious nationalism that drives political rhetoric in these countries of origin.
