Becoming (in)Visible: Countering Asian Hate, a multimedia group exhibit, opens Friday, June 4, 2021.
Organized by the Carl Cherry Center and Celadon Arts, the exhibition addresses issues of bias, scapegoating and xenophobia. It also stresses the importance of visibility, representation and cross-cultural connection. With the significant, troubling increase in anti-Asian hate crimes and bias incidents, the exhibit hopes to directly address these troubling events and support affected individuals and communities through avenues for education, unity, and action.
Becoming (in)Visible will feature artwork by Lucien Kubo, Joe Aki Ouye, Karen Nagano, Lisa Solomon, Monica Tie, Jerry Takigawa and Belle Yang. The exhibit can be seen through July 9th during gallery hours: Wednesday through Friday from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Saturday from noon to 4:00 p.m.
