APICC presents Naming and the Other Holy Things as the featured visual art exhibition of the United States of Asian America Festival 2020: FINDING KINSHIP.
The exhibition, Naming and the Other Holy Things, explores how religion and other faith systems continue to function in the midst of subjugation, rise of progressive movements and intergenerational struggles of identity. The presenting artists work across a range of media, including painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, photography, video and performance. In this exhibition, Asian and African American artists will be in dialogue with international artists. As a result, religion acts as an agent rather than merely iconographic objects, enabling an imaginative space that communicates beyond doctrines, symbols and historical writings.
