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.

 

Robert “Bob” Lee, Executive Director and Curator at Asian American Arts Centre (AAAC), has been organizing contemporary art exhibitions in Chinatown since 1983. The Art Centre’s Artists Archive - a visual record of Asian American creative presence in the US - includes artists that were exhibited at AAAC early in their career such as Natvar Bhavsar, Wafaa Bilal, Mel Chin, Albert Chong, Zarina Hashmi, Lily Yeh, Chitra Ganesh, Dinh Q Le, Martin Wong, John Yoyogi Fortes, Ik Joong Kang, Ai Wei Wei, and Zhang Hongtu. The website Artasiamerica.org features many of these artists. Bob’s national arts advocacy has led him to the PeoplesCulturalPlan.org and his local cultural activism has resulted in a book and DVD, Uncle Ng Comes to America.
