911 Affiliate Curator Lele Barnett has organized a 5-person New Media exhibition for Wing Luke Asian Museum.
In Cultural Transcendence, five Asian Pacific Islander American artists exhibit works that focus on a step forward from traditional to new media: materials expanding beyond their inherent meanings. Their conceptual themes peer into history but do not dwell on a negative past – inequality, discrimination, and alienation; instead they search the present and envision a better tomorrow. Cultural Transcendence explores the importance of technology in our modern experience and technology’s influence on contemporary installation art.
