On View: May 20 – July 16, 2022
Opening Reception: Friday, May 20th, 4:30pm – 8:00pm
The theme inVISIBLE | hyperVISIBLE captures the struggles of Asians and Asian Americans to survive and thrive in the face of strong anti-Asian sentiment. Asians and Asian Americans are alternately made invisible and hypervisible through stereotypes such as “model minorities,” “honorary whites,”“perpetual foreigners,” and “enemy aliens.” Yet, Asian America is remarkably complex due to cultural diversity, various migration routes, and different socioeconomic circumstances.
inVISIBLE | hyperVISIBLE will showcase Asian and Asian American artists, scholars, performers, and community organizers from different ethnic, gender, and geographic backgrounds.
inVISIBLE | hyperVISIBLE will feature works by: Jennifer Ling Datchuk, Yikui (Coy) Gu, Sammy Seung-min Lee, Maryrose Cobarrubias Mendoza, Tsogo Mijid, Yong Soon Min, Tuan Andrew Nguyen, Scott Tsuchitani, Joo Yeon Woo, Ren Pan and five Boulder-based artists, Erin Hyunhee Kang, Renluka Maharaj, Liz Quan, Chinn Wang, and Thomas Yi
inVISIBLE | hyperVISIBLE will open on Friday, May 20th, starting at 4:30 pm with a public artist talk from participating local artists held in the Grace Gamm Theater (proof of vaccine required). At 6:00 pm a brief introduction from the curators will be made in the lobby. The reception is an opportunity to meet and mingle with the artists and curators. Enjoy live music and refreshments available for purchase. All receptions are free and open to the public.
