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.
In Spring 2016, the A/P/A Institute launches The Wayfinding Project. On view March 25-December 21, 2016, this installation and lab aims to promote curiosity, research, and decolonize New York’s history. Initiated by John Kuo Wei Tchen, in collaboration with artist Beatrice Glow, the installation questions the representation of Indigenous cultures in relation to aesthetics of colonial history.
