'Adapted/Adopted: Journey of Asianx Women Artists'

Oct. 17 - Dec 9

The exhibition features six Asian American women artists who employ art as an adaptation strategy in their plight to reinvestigate their hybrid identities as they seek belonging and visibility in their new home country in the U.S. Some of the artists also address the adoption phenomenon of children of Asian descent being transnationally relocated and raised in American families, visualizing memories and opportunities as vital issues. The exhibit features artists Cindy Leung, Eun-Kyung Suh, Haley Takahashi, Hong Zhang, Nichole Schiller, and Nina Ghanbarzadeh.

The exhibit and celebration is in partnership with the American Association of University Women Student Chapter, Center for Equity, Inclusion, and Multicultural Engagement, Fringe Benefits of Education, and the India Association of Kansas City.
