Virtual Artist Talk: Like Me, Like You

  • 26 Jan 2022
  • 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
  • Zoom


Also featuring Don't Like Mondays artist talk with Beth Livensperger

Virtually celebrate the Twin Ports APIDA Collective's exhibition, Like Me, Like You. Hear from the artists and join a Zoom Q&A featuring images of the artworks on view.

Cross the threshold: be welcomed into the life of Asian Pacific Islander Desi Americans (APIDA) who live, work, and enrich the Twin Ports with their cultures, gifts, and histories.

Bear witness to the stories of your APIDA neighbors and friends reckoning with stereotypes, myths, assimilation, and years of invisibility, documented through podcasts and videography, through two-dimensional work including photographs and paintings, and through sculpture, jewelry and the written word. Individual narratives come together to reveal truths about living as APIDA in the Twin Ports. 

“We live quietly amongst you in government, education, business, the arts, medicine, [and] community activism. Like Me, Like You gives voice to our community. We introduce ourselves, to build solidarity among us, awareness in the community around us, and equity for all of us. In doing so, together, we can confront racism and anti-Asian hostility.

“Knowledge dissolves our arbitrary boundaries. Awareness dignifies our heritage. Come with an open heart. See us; get to know us.” – The Twin Ports APIDA Collective

This activity is made possible in part by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Arrowhead Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
