DESCRIPTION

As an increasingly ethnically ambiguous Asian American generation is coming of age, War Baby/Love Child: Mixed Race Asian American Art looks at the construction of mixed-heritage Asian American identity in the United States. Working in traditional media as well as video, installation, and other approaches, artists explore a range of topics, including US wars in Asia, multiculturalism and identity politics, racialization, gender and sexual identity, citizenship and nationality, and trans-racial adoption.

The exhibition features works across diverse mediums by emerging, mid-career and established artists who reflect a breadth of mixed heritage ethno-racial and geographic diversity: Mequitta Ahuja, Albert Chong, Serene Ford, Kip Fulbeck, Stuart Gaffney, Louie Gong, Jane Jin Kaisen, Lori Kay, Li-lan, Richard Lou, Samia Mirza, Chris Naka, Laurel Nakadate, Gina Osterloh, Adrienne Pao, Cristina Lei Rodriguez, Amanda Ross-Ho, Jenifer Wofford, and Debra Yepa-Pappan.

War Baby / Love Child was curated by Laura Kina, Vincent DePaul Professor of Art, Media and Design, and Wei Ming Dariotis, associate professor of Asian American studies at San Francisco State University.

A 304-page companion book has been published by the University of Washington Press and is available at the museum orĀ from the publisher.
