Asia North 2020: Tradition-Memory-Transformation
Launches online May 8 at https://www.towson.edu/asianorth
Twenty-five regional Asian and Asian American artists express, illustrate, and address the fusion of cultures, drawing from traditional art forms, memories of homeland, and more. Works reveal different yet interconnected layers of experiences, histories and identities of artists whose cultural roots hail from China, India, Indonesia, Iran, Japan, Korea, the Philippines, and Taiwan. The exhibit also includes a brief introduction to Baltimore’s first Koreatown and the Korean community in Greater Baltimore. Tradition-Memory-Transformation is part of Asia North 2020, a celebration of art, culture, and the Asian heritage of Greater Baltimore, especially the Korean history of Baltimore’s Charles North community. Co-produced by the Asian Arts & Culture Center and Central Baltimore Partnership with the generous support of the William G. Baker, Jr. Memorial Fund.
