> DESCRIPTION

Asians in America come upon many boundaries, some for a crossing and some remain untouched. The artists gathered here have taken position, crossing/touching various borders and giving us new ways to examine the political and/or the personal.

To this day Asians are still seen as the constant foreigner and at the same time as the model minority. Here, as artists and individuals residing in our communities, we have created a place to visually investigate ourselves or how we are perceived in generalities. It is a place where the political and personal intermingle. Some examine the borders surrounding the body while others pertain to cultural borders. At times addressing both simultaneously.
