Celebrate the opening of our special exhibition Oscar yi Hou: East of sun, west of moon with the artist and members of his creative community. At a time of heightened violence against Asian communities across the United States, yi Hou questions what it means to be “Asian American” and who is considered “American.” For this conversation, yi Hou will be joined by artists Amanda Ba and Sasha Gordon, who also appear as sitters in his paintings, to discuss their relationships in these portraits and their varied approaches to figuration. The program is moderated by Eugenie Tsai, John and Barbara Vogelstein Senior Curator, Contemporary Art.

This program will include ASL interpretation. For access needs, please email us at

Masks are required in the Auditorium and will be available upon arrival.
