"Contemporary Asian Artists in the Diaspora:
Art Awareness with a Multicultural Emphasis"

Studio Arts Program, Special Issues: Asian Art Seminar (STAR 383-05), Spring 2003

In this class we explore the work and influences of artists who were born and raised in Asia, but now live in the West.  They are often inspired by ancient traditions, but they create contemporary art, here and now.  We learn how they link old and new, and how they live the transistion through the act of immigration.
