Through June 30, the DePaul Art Museum is currently presenting the exhibit War Baby/Love Child: Mixed Race Asian American Art, which examines the formation of Asian American identities in the US. This multi-level project includes a book, traveling art exhibit, blog, and website.
Using a variety of mediums, the project explores how (or if) Asian American artists address their mixed heritage in their artwork. Featured artists explore a range of topics including US wars in Asia, multiculturalism and identity politics, gender and sexual identity, racialization, citizenship and nationality, and trans-racial adoption.
The exhibit, which runs until June 30th, is co-curated and co-edited by DePaul faculty member, Laura Kina, who is an Associate Professor of Art, Media, and Design, Vincent DePaul Professor, and American Studies, Global Asian Studies, and Women and Gender Studies affiliated faculty member. She works in collaboration with Wei Ming Dariotis, Associate Professor of Asian American Studies at San Francisco State University.
If you are interested in viewing this exhibit, you can visit the DePaul Art Museum on Monday-Thursday from 11 am-5 pm, Friday from 11 am-7 pm, and Saturday and Sunday from 12 pm-5 pm.
