The gallery at the Asian/Pacific/American Institute presents two to three exhibitions per year, focusing on the work of both emerging and established artists of Asian/Pacific descent. Each exhibition is part of an on-going effort by A/P/A to investigate modes of cultural expression among Asian/Pacific/American and diasporic  communities. Presented in conjunction with relevant A/P/A courses, symposia, and public programs, the gallery exhibitions offer the opportunity for cross-cultural dialogue, leading to a deeper understanding of broad issues through the specificity of one artist’s vision.

Currently, there is not an exhibition on view in the gallery, but the Institute is cosponsoring In the Shadow of the Highway: Robert Moses’ Expressway & the Battle for Downtown on view at the NYC Records Visitor Center from October 27, 2015-March 16, 2016
