New Narratives: Reclaiming Asian Identity
- July 28, 2020
-- Unbound Visual Arts (UVA) is pleased to present the virtual 360 degree exhibition "New Narratives: Reclaiming Asian Identity Through Story" from July 24 - September 8, 2020. This curated exhibit can be seen and experienced in the Unbound Visual Arts Virtual Exhibition Gallery 24 hours a day at https://www.unboundvisualarts.org/
This exhibition showcases 40 works by 25 artists. The curator Leslie Anne Condon states that the artists are "exploring aspects of their identity through their art, as well as Asian culture and narrative informed by personal experience. Whether the work is referencing the self and body, sexuality and gender, or intergenerational conflict and healing within the Asian community, each artist brings their distinctive perspective to the exhibition through unexpected visuals and contemporary techniques. Collectively, the exhibition offers a partial glimpse rather than a sweeping overview of the many complex issues that Asians and Asian Americans navigate daily as part of our lived realities. It also reflects, in some part, the complex and ever growing iterations of Asian identity that continue to emerge from every corner of the Greater Boston area. These creative gestures are at once expressions of pain and resiliency, resistance, and celebration."
