About This Event
Join a conversation that challenges dominant perspectives and representations of the Asian diaspora. This session is led by Francis Estrada, Abed Haddad, and Isabelle Saldaña, who will discuss their personal connections to works by Mona Hatoum, Stephanie Syjuco, and Wu Tsang. They will share their experiences of what it means to encounter artworks that relay less hegemonic perspectives from Asian diasporas dealing with regionality, (in)visibility, and inclusivity.
In Shifting Perspectives, MoMA staff facilitate casual conversations about their experiences finding personal connections with artwork in the collection. Staff introduce one artwork, then we’ll gather in small groups to discuss questions related to themes and ideas that resonate with the group. No experience with or prior knowledge of art history is required. Grab your favorite drink and log on!
