AAPIAN is an emergent network of self-identified Asian American Pacific Islander visual artists, curators, educators, writers, and patrons working between themselves and a broader public to build open relational platforms that affirm and give agency to the rich complexity of the Asian American Pacific Islander experience, through the collective exploration and sharing of contemporary Asian American Pacific Islander art practices. Formed in response to the recent (and recurrent) rise in anti-Asian bigotry and violence during the pandemic, AAPIAN seeks to present these art practices in dialogue with past, present and future socio-political contexts, with the overarching goals of increasing visibility for the experiences and works of Asian American Pacific Islander cultural producers, and catalyzing a more sustainable, equitable, and just national discourse on what it means to be Asian American Pacific Islander.
