Session 1: Art and Social Change
Friday, May 21
This session will explore how Asian diasporic and Asian-American artists, such as Eitaro Ishigaki, Isamu Noguchi, Maya Lin, Walid Raad, and the Godzilla Group have engaged with social and geopolitical issues in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries that range from colonialism and immigration to issues within the institutions of art itself.
Session 2: Art and Social Change
Friday, May 28
In the twenty-first century, we find ourselves in increasingly media-saturated and mediated realities. This session explores how Asian diasporic and Asian-American artists such as Nam June Paik, Tala Madani, Anicka Yi, and Xing Danwen have uniquely navigated the transforming landscape of media and technology—from photography to video installations to games—to explore technology’s role in the changing nature of the self and the environment through these experiences.
