IMAGE CREDIT: Toyo Miyatake, from Manzanar collection, 1943In conjunction with the publication of Hidden in Plain Sight: Selected Writings of Karin Higa, edited by Julie Ault, this roundtable takes Higa’s capacious, adventurous scholarship as a starting point to reimagine the history of Asian American art and the practice of art history. Rigorously historical and deeply observed, Higa’s work refused conventional binaries of form/content, racialized/white, and reflected what Ault describes as the “unfolding of the paradoxical category of Asian American art in the 1990s and 2000s.” In light of the renewed attention to Asian American artists in the contemporary moment, how might Higa’s practice offer a model for reimagining temporalities, geographies and received art historical narratives in academic scholarship and curatorial practice? How might her work help us move beyond questions of categorization when considering the work of Asian American artists and other racialized artists?
Panelists: Marci Kwon, Stanford University; Pamela Lee, Yale University School of Art; Tomie Arai, Asian/Pacific/American Institute at New York University; Ekalan Hou, History of Art PhD at Yale; and Julie Ault, American artist, curator, editor and cofounder of Group Material.
