In honor of AAPI month, the Fowler Museum (ACC 2000, 2008, 2013) is hosting a virtual studio visit with renowned Japanese American artist Glenn Kaino, followed by a conversation with arts writer Scarlet Cheng.
Renowned Japanese American multimedia artist Glenn Kaino creates works that often function as poetic contradictions, aiming to reconcile conflicting ideologies, opposing systems, and strict dichotomies. Kaino’s most recent work responds to the connections between protests across the globe, and explores the power of collective action in forging a more just world.
Join the Fowler for a virtual tour of Kaino’s studio and see works in progress that build a framework for collaborative storytelling across generations. Then, listen to a conversation between Kaino and arts writer and adjunct professor Scarlet Cheng as they discuss the need for anti-racist, cross-community coalition building, and the rarely-addressed challenges faced by the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities.
