What defines the American experience? What makes a community? In this ongoing series we invite participants to a town hall-style Zoom with local artists and community stakeholders to address these and other questions as we grapple with the effects of a global pandemic and a renewed reckoning with racial injustice.

For Which it Stands: Landscapes of the Japanese American Experience

The work of artist Emily Hanako Momohara centers around issues of identity, immigration, and social justice. Whether camping on Angel Island in San Francisco, the former immigration gateway from the East, in a quest to better understand her great-grandfather’s experience, or photographing former sites of incarceration of Japanese Americans and Japanese immigrants during World War II, her work probes her own family narrative, the transmission of cultural traditions, and allows us to critically reflect on the diverse experience of immigrants to America. Join us for this reprisal of our Town Hall series.
