Moving Images by Chinese American Artists

On view January 26, 2024 – April 21, 2024

Visit Another Beautiful Country, an exhibition drawing its name from the Chinese translation of America (美國/měiguó) and the American-born Chinese abbreviation, ABC. Featured artworks portray nuanced interplays between Chinese American identities and representations, challenging conventional notions of nationhood. Through cinematic strategies including staging and experimental documentary, exhibited artists present transnational relations, familial dynamics, and intimate tales of migration. Resisting stereotypes and globalization’s dehumanizing aspects, Another Beautiful Country brings together artworks as scenes of cross-cultural sharing.   

This exhibition is guest-curated by Jenny Lin, Ph.D.
