Asian American Art Exhibit Explores Feminism and Diversity

San Francisco’s Chinese Culture Center is currently exhibiting WOMEN我們: From Her to Hear. The exhibit features Asian American artists and explores feminism, gender diversity and sexual equality from the perspective of Asian and Asian American women.

The name of the exhibit comes from a play on words. The Chinese word for “we,” (我們), in Mandarin shares the same pronunciation as the word “women” in English, according to an article by KQED. The Chinese Culture Center has announced that it will display mixed media works, photography, paintings and more.

The featured artists include Chen Han Sheng, Huang Meng Wen, Heesoo Kwon, Madeleine Lim, Nicole Pun, Queer Reads Library x Mixed Rice Zines, Tina Takemoto, Brad Walrond, Chelsea Ryoko Wong, Luka Yuanyuan Yang + Carlo Nasisse, and Yao Hong. All artists come from a number of diverse backgrounds such as but not limited to Taiwan, the Bay Area, Hong Kong and China.

The series is the third part to an ongoing installation. Information regarding the exhibit is also offered in Mandarin. You can find the installation ‘WOMEN我們: From Her to Here’ at the Chinese Culture Center (750 Kearny St., 3rd Floor) and online through Aug. 28.
