MOCA presents a dynamic program series that engages curators, artists and cultural producers across generations and geographies in critical conversations to deeply investigate the aesthetic concerns, subject matter, and experiences within the Chinese and Asian American cultural community.


For this event, Hua Hsu will discuss his first foray into exhibition-making as part of the curatorial team that organized MOCA’s current exhibition “The Moon Represents My Heart: Music, Memory, and Belonging.” The conversation will be moderated by co-curators Herb Tam, MOCA Curator and Director of Exhibitions, and Andrew Rebatta, Associate Curator.


Hua Hsu is a staff writer at the New Yorker and the author of A Floating Chinaman: Fantasy and Failure Across the Pacific (Harvard University Press, 2016.) He is also an associate professor of English and director of the American Studies program. He is a board member for the Asian American Writers' Workshop and a fellow at the Institute for Public Knowledge at New York University.
