The Asian Pacific Islander Cultural Center (APICC) presents Resistance, a visual arts exhibition as part of the 19th annual United States of Asian America Festival. Curated by Pamela Ybañez, this group exhibition features multidisciplinary works of 10 Asian and Pacific Islander artists from the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond exploring themes of gentrification, displacement, placemaking, and the artist’s role in the community through installation, performance, video, and more. Creating a space of expression, exploration, and reflection, the exhibition strives to engage community members to feel empowered and arts communities in San Francisco, Oakland, and elsewhere to intersect in order to present possible solutions around the complex issues of displacement that artists and a multitude of others currently face.

Resistance is presented at SOMArts in partnership with APICC. For more information, visit: http://www.somarts.org/apiccresistance/
