inVISIBLE | hyperVISIBLE II - Press Release
May 20 - July 16, 2022
at Dairy Art Center, Boulder, CO

We are delighted to announce the second iteration of the inVISIBLE | hyperVISIBLE. The inVISIBLE | hyperVISIBLE II will run from May 20 to July 16, 2022 at at the Dairy Art Center, Boulder, Colorado.
The theme inVISIBLE | hyperVISIBLE captures the struggles of Asians and Asian Americans to survive and thrive in the face of strong anti-Asian sentiment. Asians and Asian Americans are alternately made invisible and hypervisible through stereotypes such as “model minorities,” “honorary whites,”“perpetual foreigners,” and “enemy aliens.” Yet, Asian America is remarkably complex due to cultural diversity, various migration routes, and different socioeconomic circumstances. The inVISIBLE | hyperVISIBLE opens during AAPI heritage month.
inVISIBLE | hyperVISIBLE will feature works by:
Jennifer Ling Datchuk, Yikui (Coy) Gu, Sammy Seung-min Lee, Maryrose Cobarrubias Mendoza, Tsogo Mijid, Yong Soon Min, Tuan Andrew Nguyen, Scott Tsuchitani, Joo Yeon Woo, Ren Pan and five Boulder-based artists, Erin Hyunhee Kang, Renluka Maharaj, Liz Quan, Chinn Wang and Thomaz Yi.
