We narrate us is pleased to announce, Mezzanine, a group exhibition co-curated by Jennifer (Chia-ling) Ho and Min Sun Jeon featuring works by Furen Dai, Moko Fukuyama, Pei-Ling Ho, Hai-Hsin Huang, Qinmin Liu, Anh Thuy Nguyen, Hyunjung Rhee, and Joanna Tam.
Mezzanine is an exhibition comprised of contemporary women artists from East and Southeast Asia living in the US, sharing their stories with their own voice. Society narrates us into roles that can be overwhelmingly difficult to break free. Growing up in Asia and coming to the US to pursue their artistic career has led these artists to construct the assertion and reflection of themselves with the pre-imposed barriers and conflicts of being an immigrant, and being a woman. Featured artists not only challenge the pre-existing western perspectives of the yellow women, but also the conventional idea of what it means to be an Asian woman.

Join us with a discussion on
"Asian women artists in the context of the social and institutional structure"
with Furen Dai, Jean Shin, Xin Wang, and Moko Fukuyama
We narrate us is an ongoing project, a discussion on Asian women artists in New York started by Jennifer (Chia-ling) Ho and Min Sun Jeon. The project aims to initiate a conversation on the diverse and complex experiences living as an Asian female in the US. Instead of seeking for a singular representation of “Asian female”, the project wishes to encourage artists with different cultural experiences to construct the identity together in the plural.
