Visit ‘inVISIBLE / hyperVISIBLE’ at the Dairy Art Center, Boulder!

Once again, the Denver-based Korean American artist Sammy Lee will be hosting another exhibition along with scholars Boyung Lee, Boram Jeong, and Chad Shomura which will facilitate the exhibit, artist talks and film screening, and so much more! The first ‘inVISIBLE / heperVISIBLE’ exhibition at RedLine Contemporary Art Center in Downtown Denver was held successfully last September and many local artists and art fans enjoyed their event.

The ‘inVISIBLE / hyperVISIBLE’, an art and humanity project on Asian America, will open at the Dairy Art Center located in Boulder starting May 20th until July 16th. This exhibition is also to celebrate the AAPI(Asian American and Pacific Islander)  Heritage Month, which started on May 1st and ends on May 31st.

The theme ‘inVISIBLE / hyperVISIBLE’ captures the struggles of Asians and Asian Americans to survive and thrive in the face of strong anti-Asian sentiment that has lasted especially during the pandemic. Asians and Asian Americans are alternately made invisible and hypervisible through stereotypes such as “model minorities,” “honorary whites,” “perpetual foreigners,” and “enemy aliens.” Yet, Asian America is remarkably complex due to cultural diversity, various migration routes, and different socioeconomic circumstances. This exhibition will showcase Asian and Asian American artists, scholars, performers, and community organizers from different ethnic, gender and geographic backgrounds.

Participating artists include Jennifer Ling Datchuk, Yikui (Coy) Gu, Sammy Seung-min Lee, Maryrose Cobarrubias Mendoza, Tsogo Mijid, Yong Soon Min, Tuan Andrew Nguyen, Scott Tsuchitani, Joo Yeon Woo, Ren Pan and five Boulder-based artists, Erin Hyunhee Kang, Renluka Maharaj, Liz Quan, Chinn Wang and Thomaz Yi.

The opening reception of inVISIBLE / hyperVISIBLE starts at 5pm on May 20th. You can get an access to more information about the exhibition at https://thedairy.org/invisible-hypervisible/ or artist Sammy Lee’s official website https://www.studiosmlk.com/.
