The Chinese American Museum of Chicago (CAMOC) is pleased to be a co-host for this exciting discussion. Moderated by multimedia artist and art history Lecturer, Larry Lee, the discussion welcomes the voices of three artists, Chien-An Yuan, Frances Kai-Hwa Wang, and Jave Yoshimoto. The program offers a brief examination of how early Chinese Americans settled in Midwest states and a discussion into how descendants hold on to community and heritage today. The artists will share their experiences living and working in places that offer limited ways to connect to Asian American culture and how they have carved space to create opportunities and communities of their own.
“An Untold Past” is a series developed by the Chinese American Museum (Los Angeles) to tell the often unknown history of Chinese diasporas in the US and around the world. Please register by clicking the button below.
