Mixed media artist: Cathy Quon

In response to increasing polarization in the U.S., Ms. Quon has developed a series of collages and assemblages focusing on racism against Chinese- and Japanese-Americans. Ms. Quon hopes her works will build viewers’ awareness of AAPI history and call attention to the racism, both historical and shockingly fresh, against Asian communities. She feels that only through learning, can our society avoid repeating the sins of the past.
