SEVEN DAYS ON DISPLAY: a week of art actions about identity, visual storytelling, & public interaction.
This week of art actions is a spontaneously planned project that asks us to critically think about the way we perceive Asian-American identity, especially on Duke’s campus. Many of the project concepts stems from thinking about my identity as an Asian-American woman and how this has affected the way I have come to understand myself and my relationship with the others around me.
As a whole, however, SEVEN DAYS ON DISPLAY branches out much more than just “Asian-American.” It speaks to intersectionalities of gender, race, sexuality, body image, and the way we interact with different narratives in society.
The act of performance and public interaction is the means by which I try to comprehend what it means to be on display. How is my art and how is my body, itself, on display? How are all of our stories on display in our daily lives?
A big thanks to Duke’s Asian Students Association (ASA) and the Asian American Alliance (AAA) for all the support!
