Inspired by Lim’s poem, Wonder Women, curated by Kathy Huang, presents thirty Asian American and diasporic women and non-binary artists responding to themes of wonder, self, and identity through figuration. While some artists explore wonder as it relates to mythology and legend, others depict the heroines in their lives, offering works that highlight family, community, and history. Several of the works in Wonder Women address colonial and patriarchal structures in the West.

“The increasing violence against Asians Americans, particularly against Asian women and the elderly, emphasizes the need to tell our own stories. Figuration allows the artists to present themselves, their communities, and their histories on their own terms,” says Huang. The resulting works offer a cross-section of experience that celebrates difference and points of connection at the same time.

Several of the artists in Wonder Women are friends and collaborators across cities such as New York, Los Angeles, Austin, London, and Montréal.

Curator Kathy Huang is Managing Director, Art Advisory & Special Projects at Jeffrey Deitch.
