Local and international artist Laurens Tan arrange this exhibit that explores what it means to be Asian Pacific Islander. Here are some questions he asked artists who have work displayed in this year’s exhibition. In a global society, how are we different? Does where we originate matter anymore? Do we assimilate so there’s little to distinguish us? Can our cultural past make our plight somehow different? Do we celebrate our origins? Why does it matter? Artists will discuss their work and these questions in this exhibit talk.
