The rise in Asian hate crimes in America has led to an incredible coming together of the Asian American art community. Benefit auctions left and right, new community groups forming, Asian American artists gaining the spotlight with big solo shows. Yet there has not been a show that comprehensively captures both the breadth and depth of this moment. Until now. Enter Wonder Women, thirty Asian American and diasporic women and non-binary artists exploring themes of wonder, self, and identity. It’s a show about generational trauma, colonization, violence, heteronormativity, but it’s also a story about mythology, love, self-discovery, and community. An exhibition that really allows you to see how art reflects life – perhaps even your own.
Just down the block, you can check out Sasha Gordon’s show at Deitch’s other NY space. She’s also featured in Wonder Women.
