Artists from the Asian and African diasporas discuss their practices in relation to themes of hope, resistance, and transnational futurity.
Join us for a conversation with artists from across the Asian and African diasporas presented in conjunction with the exhibition After Hope: Videos of Resistance at the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco.
Two featured artists from the exhibition, Tiffany Chung and Connie Zheng, and two artists previously exhibited through the Museum of the African Diaspora’s Emerging Artists Program, Simone Bailey and Cheryl Derricotte, discuss their practices in relation to themes of hope, resistance, and transnational futurity. The evening’s discussion will be moderated by Aleesa Pitchamarn Alexander, assistant curator of American art at the Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University.
After Hope: Artists in Conversation is co-organized with the Museum of the African Diaspora.
After Hope: Videos of Resistance is organized by the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco. Support is provided by the Taiwan Academy in Los Angeles, Ministry of Culture of Taiwan.
