NYU Kimmel Windows | Art in Public Places is pleased to present MIXED (2010-2017), an exhibition exploring families of “mixed” races, ethnicities, and cultures by the artist CYJO. It portrays families in cities CYJO has lived in—New York City, Beijing, the Washington D.C. metro area, and Miami. MIXED captures these families and their experiences in interviews and large-format photographic portraits taken in their own homes. Thus, through words and images, MIXED explores identity in cross-cultural contexts.

More about the exhibition:
The families seen in MIXED, like so many we know, beyond these windows, present a persistent truth: human migration is a story reiterated and shared across many histories. Yet, what does it mean to live in a family of mixed heritages, cultures, citizenships, and contexts? These families’ voices offer us a variety of views into supportive, conflicted, and complex personal relationships, offering both the intimacy of family contexts and the scope of larger societal frames. These individuals and their families impart specific vantage points on different backgrounds and cultures as lived experiences, offering their personal stories as they lay claim to the racial identities and cultural backgrounds that connect us.
