In collaboration with the Artists Alliance Inc.(AAI) an AAAC (Asian American Arts Centre) exhibition entitled tentatively, “Eight Artists: from the Archive”, will be installed in the Cuchifritos art gallery/project space located inside the Essex Street Market from August 14th - September 11th 2010.
This exhibition of Eight Artists from the Archive brings a few chosen artists to the public, focused on those presented in AAAC’s digital archive – artasiamerica.org. The best way to present a context for such art at Cuchifritos is through the presence of the digital archive. Making this resource available on site and demonstrating the ease of tapping into it. AAAC has been gathering its physical archive of images and documents of Asian American artists for over two decades, and a good portion of this resource is now online. Go to artasiamerica.org and/or come to the gallery and ask for a tour of it there.
