Shahzia Sikander in Without Apology: Asian American Selves, Memories, and Futures

This exhibition spotlights the vibrancy and diversity of Asian American artistic expressions over the past century. The Asian American artists featured in the exhibition reclaim and reframe racialized narratives of the past, explore the legacies of these histories on their present identities, and forecast alternative visions of the future. Collectively, the works of art underscore experiences of imperialism and displacement, economic and political discrimination, and broken cultural and familial lineages. But they equally illustrate the boldly playful and imaginative energies of Asian American artists, highlighting the resilience of Asian American communities that continually envision new futures and possibilities of belonging.
