Tina Kim Gallery is proud to present a panel regarding the importance of raising awareness about anti-Asian discrimination, in partnership with the Korean American Community Foundation, especially given the drastic rise in Asian American hate crimes since the COVID-19 pandemic. This panel would feature KACF president Kyung B. Yoon, ABC Night-line co-anchor Juju Chang, and Guggenheim Senior Curator of Asian Art Alexandra Munroe. Please join us for a crucial, informative discussion regarding a topic of contemporary imperativeness that will have lasting societal implications. The panel will be hosted at Frieze NY 2021 in conjunction with their “Vision and Justice” initiative, and we want to thank Frieze for this opportunity to draw attention to our cause.
Kyung B. Yoon, Juju Chang and Alexandra Monroe are respective leaders in their fields. All three women have contributed to the advancement and understanding of the Asian identity, from media narratives to art installations, on the western front and internationally. We would like to spark a discussion about awareness and solidarity in the face of the current crisis, from a personal, professional and institutional perspective. The dichotomy will include the role of art and cultural institutions in building empathy through education, and how we can engage in actionable steps towards a brighter future.
