Billboard created for For Freedoms by Stop DiscriminAsian, on view in Los Angeles.
“Particularly prevalent are the Asian hologram advertisements that apparently occupy every cityscape in the future, from Blade Runner (1982) to A.I. (2001) to Minority Report (2002), and do we even need to start in on Ghost in the Shell (2017)?”
“Suparak’s piece is immediate and her voice, narrating the words, is melodic and compelling. The over-dubbing of her acerbic observations on blockbuster films is a compelling prelude to other iterations of her work that will appear in fragments across digital platforms.”
Short video essay that looks at how white science fiction filmmakers fill the backgrounds of their futuristic worlds with hollow Asian figures—in the form of video and holographic advertisements—while the main cast (if not the entirety of their fictional universe’s population) is devoid of actual Asian people.
A newly commissioned public art project and the first survey exhibition of art collective Related Tactics.
Series of projects, presentations, and texts on how white filmmakers envision futures inflected by Asian culture, but devoid of actual Asian people. A visual analysis of 50+ years of American science fiction cinema.
This exhibition is about living with history in the here and now and the distillations we carry into the future. These artists are meticulous researchers, utilizing chemistry, botany, math, religion, politics, and bureaucracy. They explore possibilities, capture turmoil and fallow periods, track displacement and migrations.
A history of the team and how it intertwines with civic issues, particularly: gun laws and violence, business and labor, real estate and gentrification, race, and class.
The artists in this exhibition draw upon the hidden and political histories of sports to open up analyses of the social world.
This year-long series of art exhibitions, film programs, discussions, commissioned projects, and other events took place in galleries, cinemas, sports bars, bookstores, and on rooftops from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C.
An illustrated experimental essay on authenticity, postmemory, appropriation, and racial and ethnic identity (and recent cases in the art world and beyond). KQED described the commissioned chapbook as “finely wrought words.” On view at SFMOMA through Summer 2020.
An installation superimposing the goals of six major sports.
Videos selected from over 140 galleries of The International Exposition of Modern and Contemporary Art.
This exhibition provides a view into the passion and diversity of the punk feminist movement Riot Grrrl, and highlights how these ideas have broadened, evolved and mutated in the work of contemporary artists.
These projects demonstrate the strength of collective voices in deciding the future of neighborhoods, cities, nations, and societies, and the importance of intimate conversations and compassionate listening.
The first major gallery exhibition to present sports fanaticism as a significant form of cultural production, bridging the assumed gap between sports and the arts.
This is a new map of the world representing Steeler Nation, where countries that don’t have a fan base for the Pittsburgh NFL team don’t exist.
The first major exhibition of the internationally renowned culture-jamming group. Dubbed “the most prescient show of the year” by Paper City and “a timely acknowledgment of the work of […] the great social satirists of our time” by Art Papers.
Photographs and new installation work examine how communities are changing in the shadow of corporate real estate.
