A primary point of departure for A Journal of the Plague Year and many of its artists is the portrayal of “the other” in pop-culture.┬áDemonized or exoticized depictions of Asians and Asian Americans pervade popular films, both reflecting on and perpetuating racial and social inequalities. On Saturday April 11 and 18, a selection of relevant feature films will be screened during gallery hours. These films address the role of popular culture in the formation of modern societies and contributes to the exhibition’s critical discussion about xenophobia and recent history. Film selection and schedule to be announced.
