Crash Courses on Asian-American Artists in the Whitney’s Collection
In recognition of AAPI Heritage Month, we are offering a crash course that explores work by Asian diasporic and Asian-American artists from the Whitney's collection. The course will be led via Zoom webinar and participants will be invited to comment and ask questions through a moderated chat.

Session 1: Art and Social Change
May 21

This session will explore how Asian diasporic and Asian-American artists, such as Eitaro Ishigaki, Isamu Noguchi, Maya Lin, Walid Raad, and the Godzilla Group have engaged with social and geopolitical issues in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries that range from colonialism and immigration to issues within the institutions of art itself.

Session 2: Technology and Fantasy
May 28

In the twenty-first century, we find ourselves in increasingly media-saturated and mediated realities. This session explores how Asian diasporic and Asian-American artists such as Nam June Paik, Tala Madani, Anicka Yi, and Xing Danwen have uniquely navigated the transforming landscape of media and technology—from photography to video installations to games—to explore technology’s role in the changing nature of the self and the environment through these experiences.
