In 1994 Asia Society launched its contemporary art program with “Asia/America: Identities in Asian American Art,” a landmark exhibition that considered bicultural identity in the work of diasporic and Asian American artists living and working in the United States. A quarter-century later, this panel will reflect on the current playing field of artistic representation for Asian American and Asian diasporic artists in the United States and how these artists position themselves within a globalized art world.

Watch this program live on YouTube or Facebook.

This conversation features artists Jordan Nassar and Shahzia Sikander and is moderated by Michelle Yun, vice president, global artistic programs; director, Asia Society Museum; and artistic director, Asia Society Triennial
