Transpacific Borderlands Artist Talk

events/JANM-TranspacificBorderlands-ShinpeiTakeda-GhostMagnet-300px_3.jpg

On the closing day of Transpacific Borderlands: The Art of Japanese Diaspora in Lima, Los Angeles, Mexico City, and São Paulo, join exhibition curator Clement Hanami and exhibiting artist Shinpei Takeda for a conversation on social representation and cultural context across borders. How do borderlands function as a space for exchanging ideas and culture? How do artworks take on new cultural and historical meanings when displayed to a new audience? What is the role of the artist and his/her practice?

The talk will be moderated by Selene Preciado, an independent curator and Program Assistant at the Getty Foundation, and include time for audience Q&A.

Included with museum admission. RSVPs are recommended using the link below.

The Breakfast Club: An Asian American Staged Reading

Join us for the latest effort from No Shortage of Asian Talent, a group formed to combat the severe lack of Asian Pacific Islander American representation in Hollywood by demonstrating the breadth of available APIA talent.

An all-APIA cast will perform a staged reading of John Hughes’ classic 1995 film, The Breakfast Club, in which five high school students are forced to confront their identities during a Saturday detention session.

Included with museum admission. RSVPs are recommended using the link below.
