Scanning the Room gallery exhibition opening

May 5 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Come meet co-curator June Sekiguchi and other artists exhibiting in May show “Scanning the Room”. We invited June to create the concept and co-curate a show for VCA for May, which is Asian American Native Hawaiian/ Pacific Islander (AANHPI) month, which is observed annually in the United States to reflect upon and celebrate the contributions and influence of AANHPI Americans to the history, culture, and achievements of the US.

Scanning the Room presents visual art from 20 AANHPI artists that speaks to identity, politics, or experience of how they view their place as the ‘Other’ in predominantly white spaces. Featured Artists: Anida Yoeu Ali, Cheryll Leo-Gwin, Eliaichi Kimaro, Erin Shigaki, Hanako O’Leary, Jonathan Wakuda Fischer, June Sekiguchi, Lauren Iida, MalPina Chan, Marialina Wallace,  Michelle Kumata, Miya Sukune, Nari Baker, Paula Onodera Wong, Saya Moriyasu, Soo Hong, Teruko Nimura, Thuy-Van Vu, Trenton Quiocho, and Yoshi Nakagawa. Exhibition conceived by and co-curated with June Sekiguchi.

To scan a room is an automatic response for many people in the AANHPI community to gauge the racial makeup of a space upon entering. Is it a factor of safety in an environment of increased Asian hate or simply as an observational awareness that is physically, emotionally and psychically increased when navigating spaces that have a majority Caucasian racial makeup.

The art is compelling and thought-provoking; an artistic expression of a timely topic.
