The contemporary art of the last sixty years by Asian American artists exhibited by Asian American Arts Centre will be accessed at this event, particularly during the talk by the curator/executive director Robert Lee.
The AAAC Artists Archive is a research and educational archive documenting the history of Asian Pacific American Artists in the United States since 1945 to the present. Focused on twenty six years of AAAC contemporary art exhibitions held in the Lower Manhattan, it is inclusive of American artists deeply influenced by Asia. Its online counterpart – Artasiamerica.org is a high-quality research tool as well as an innovative educational asset for college and high school students, educators, and community members.
Foremost, it features images of the art works of the artists themselves, with written material to support them. Together they enable a direct experience of the art of Asian American artists and the issues and questions of cultural diversity in America.
