RESISTANCE takes part in and kicks off Asian Pacific Islander Cultural Center’s (APICC) 19th annual UNITED STATES OF ASIAN AMERICA FESTIVAL 2016: CIVIL DIS(PLACE)MENT

APICC’s annual group exhibition featuring ten Asian American artists offer ideas, tools and insights against the current tide of gentrification as a way to empower and inspire individuals. The artists themselves have either been directly affected by displacement and/or care passionately about the shifting demographics of their city. Through installation, performance, video, drawing, painting and sculpture, these pieces ask what is the role of the artist and how can we save existing spaces or create new space for all people?

Special Opening Performances: HuiMeng Wang as part of her installation piece 'The Reason We Dine Tonight' will be doing a live one-hour long dinner party performance. Bonnie Wai-Lee Kwong, author of book of poetry ravel, will also be presenting new work, a multimedia performance 'Loiter' accompanied by Angela Urata, Molly Fishman, Jonathon Relucio and Wendy Martinez Marroquin.
