New Stories from the Edge of Asia: This/That
These artists take on identity issues (and Asian identity in particular) by creating narratives that often are born from loosely autobiographical, conflicting situations. In video, film, multimedia works, photographs, and performance art, they conjure temporary identities that reflect the constant struggle, negotiation, and precarious balance between different worlds. The exhibition includes works by Erica Cho, Mike Lai, Candice Lin, the artists’ collective Mail Order Brides (M.O.B.) (Eliza Barrios, Reanne Estrada, and Jenifer Wofford), and T. Kim-Trang. “New Stories from the Edge of Asia” is an ongoing exhibition series that presents work by artists from Pacific Rim countries and cultures who explore new narrative territory using animation, digital techniques, video, and film.
