What Really Defines us?…It’s compliated

Dear friends,

I would like to invite you to our next three-person exhibition at the Chinese American Arts Council located at 456 Broadway, 3rd Floor, New York, NY 10013.

The reception is on Friday, February 28th from 6 to 8 pm.

The exhibition features recent works by women artists Patricia Cazorla, Nancy Saleme, and Cheryl Wing-Zi Wong. Through sculpture, installation and 2D works, the artists explore the complexities of racial identity and labor in the domestic realm within the Asian-American and Latin-American diaspora. These immigrant groups have greatly shaped the U.S. and are often the silent, “unseen” characters in the systems and institutions that support, feed and clean American homes.

As technology and social media grant us increasingly more access into our previously unsearchable pasts, DNA testing companies also bring us more questions than answers about who we really are. Our identity seems tied to where we live, where we grew up, where we call home. Yet ‘home’ is not a straight-forward concept, and often carries multiple meanings for us.
