On a recent Houston Adventure, our family went to the AsiaSociety Texas for their Lunar New Year event. I highly recommend the LNY event on its own – we’ve had so much fun each time we’ve attended. While enjoying the festivities, we learned they had just opened a new exhibit:
Making Home: Artists and Immigration focuses on immigration and related themes through the works of Phung Huynh, Beili Liu, Tuan Andrew Nguyen, and Amanda Phingbodhipakkiya. The exhibition engages with the individual, lived experiences of immigration through the paintings, prints, drawings, sculptures, and installations of the four featured artists. Making Home centers the complexities of deeply personal histories of immigration, as the artists consider topics of intergenerationality, the repercussions of colonial histories, dislocation, memory, otherness, belonging, and resilience.

This is definitely an exhibition to hit up if you are in Houston.
