About The Speakers

Francis Estrada is an educator for School and Teacher Programs at MoMA and an artist who interrogates how visual cues found in historical photographs, mass media, political propaganda, and personal archives influence or inflect social or cultural narratives.

Lyn Hsieh is the department manager of the Education Department at MoMA, where she manages resources and infrastructure for staff to deliver their creative ideas and serve the public. As an immigrant from Taiwan, Lyn is fascinated by the various narratives and is constantly reshaping her own perspective.

Mia Rubin is the public programs intern in the Education department at MoMA and an artist who explores Asian American and adoptee identity through print and textile design. As a Chinese adoptee, Mia is interested in unpacking and understanding ancestry and questions surrounding chosen family, belonging, and who tells adoptee stories.
