Philosophy and Ethnic Studies Collaborators Invite the CU Denver Community to inVISIBLE | hyperVISIBLE

Published: June 16, 2022

Philosophy’s Boram Jeong, along with Ethnic Studies'  Boyung Lee, Sammy Lee, and Chad Shomura recently revived the exhibiton inVISIBLE | hyperVISIBLE at the Dairy Arts Center (running now to July 16th). The theme inVISIBLE | hyperVISIBLE captures the struggles of Asians and Asian Americans to survive and thrive in the face of strong anti-Asian sentiment. Asians and Asian Americans are alternately made invisible and hypervisible through stereotypes such as “model minorities,” “honorary whites,”“perpetual foreigners,” and “enemy aliens.” Yet, Asian America is remarkably complex due to cultural diversity, various migration routes, and different socioeconomic circumstances.  inVISIBLE | hyperVISIBLE will showcase Asian and Asian American artists, scholars, performers, and community organizers from different ethnic, gender, and geographic backgrounds.
