Activism and Diaspora: American Art Histories

NYU Washington DC / Smithsonian American Art Museum

Alexandra Chang (Rutgers University, Newark) and ShiPu Wang (University of California, Merced) co-convene an intensive academic workshop for scholars and curators to examine art activism through a global comparative lens. On Friday, December 6 and Saturday, December 7, the public is invited to join the conversation. Featured speakers include experts in Asian American, Latinx, Indigenous, and African American art, as well as Global Asias perspectives.

I am incredibly honoured to be invited to join in this academic workshop, and will be sharing about ‘curating-as-research-and-organising’ and our work at Asia-Art-Activism.

If you’re stateside and near DC, please do join us. Full programme here.

Presented by the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU. Supported by the Terra Foundation for American Art and The Japan Foundation, New York (JFNY) Grant for Japanese Studies program.
