Circles and Circuits explores the art of the Chinese Caribbean diaspora from the early 20th century to the present day. By examining the contributions of artists of Chinese descent in Cuba, Panama, Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, and beyond, the exhibition reveals the hidden complexities of the transcultural art of the Caribbean.

Circles and Circuits is presented at two venues: the Chinese American Museum (CAM) and the California African American Museum (CAAM).

At CAM, Circles and Circuits II: Contemporary Chinese Caribbean Art focuses on the work of contemporary artists, including Albert Chong and Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons, as well as artists of the ongoing Chinese Caribbean diaspora. This exhibition is organized by the Chinese American Museum in partnership with the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at New York University and CAAM. Curated by Alexandra Chang, A/P/A Institute at
 NYU, and Steven Y. Wong, CAM, in coordination with Mar Hollingsworth, Visual Arts Curator and Program Manager, CAAM. The exhibition is part of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, a far-reaching and ambitious exploration of Latin American and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles, taking place from September 2017 through January 2018 at more than seventy cultural institutions across Southern California. Pacific Standard Time is an initiative of the Getty.
