Transpacific Borderlands: The Art of Japanese Diaspora in Lima, Los Angeles, Mexico City, and São Paulo

Start
September 17, 2017
End
February 25
Cost
$6 - $10

“Transpacific Borderlands: The Art of Japanese Diaspora in Lima, Los Angeles, Mexico City, and São Paulo” will examine the experiences of artists of Japanese ancestry born, raised, or living in either Latin America or predominantly Latin American neighborhoods of Southern California. Their methods of making art are diverse, from traditional to experimental, and the work itself illustrates perspectives of the Japanese Latin American experience directly, metaphorically, and/or abstractly. The exhibition will show how homeland, ethnic communities, racial mixing, and cosmopolitanism inform the creativity and aesthetics of this hybrid culture. It will also provide a visual record of contemporary Japanese Latin American art and contribute to the understanding of identity in a world where the meaning of race and ethnicity are constantly evolving.

Tuesdays – Sundays 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., Thursdays 12:00 noon – 8:00 p.m.
Free general admission every Thursday from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and all day every third Thursday of the month

Over 120 photos feature subjects ranging from defiant youth known as “Freakies” to the hard-partying children of the 1%, the underground system of sharing digital…
