Join the Asian American Arts Alliance for our November Town Hall, highlighting visual arts practitioners!
Learn about the diverse and exciting creative arts projects and opportunities coming out of the Asian American visual arts community during Town Hall’s rapid-fire line-up of 60-second pitches, and meet our featured presenters Shihui Zhou, founder of Latitude Gallery and artist/curator duo Vidisha-Fadescha and Shaunak Mahbubani of After Party Collective!
Sign up to pitch and share an upcoming project or exhibition, promote an event, ask for help, find collaborators and venues for your work, inform others about an opportunity or residency, or simply introduce yourselves and your work to the community. Bring something to share for our post-pitch potluck!
- Visual artist, gallerist, and curator, Shihui Zhou was born and raised in China, where she attended Tsinghua University in Beijing for her BA in Art and Design. Moving to the United States for graduate study, Zhou worked closely under American visual artist Nick Cave at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Zhou is also an alumnus of Textile Arts Center Artist Residency and ChaShaMa ChaNorth Residency program. Shihui’s works have been shown in the US and overseas, as well featured in The New York Times and other well-known art publications. She has curated many exhibitions in New York. At the beginning of the year 2020, Zhou founded LATITUDE Gallery New York committed to ensuring opportunities for young Asian artists and curators in New York. Zhou is now living in Brooklyn, NY, USA.
- After Party Collective, formed by artist-curator duo Vidisha-Fadescha and Shaunak Mahbubani, acts in the intersections between curatorial and performance practices. Expanding the Party as a site for critical praxis they produce spaces of embodied thinking to create momentum towards affirmation of trans * , intersex, and gender-deviant bodies. Through recent projects — Queer Futures Potluck Party at Goethe-Institute New Delhi, video work Some Dance to Remember, Some Dance to Forget, Trans * Futures Archive at ISCP NY, Party at the End of Gender Normativity at Wienwoche Vienna, publication co-curated with Party Office Consent of the Governed: Race, Constitution and Kink, and upcoming exhibition DANCE TRANS * REVOLUTION at apexart NY — they are energizing choreographies of collectivity, agency, legality, and pleasure.
