Season II: A Group Exhibition With Chopsticks Alley Art and Triton Museum of Art
Updated: Feb 1
Season II: A Group Exhibition with Chopsticks Alley Art and Triton Museum of Art opened on Sunday, September 25, 2022. Exhibition will be open until January 8, 2023.
This is Chopsticks' first in-person exhibit opening since February 2020 when we last opened Ấp Ủ: Identity, Journey, and Legacy Art Exhibit at San Jose Museum of Art.
Season II is a group exhibition by a partnership between Chopsticks Alley Art and the Triton Museum of Art. The exhibit features four exemplary Asian American artists practicing different art forms. The artists showcased represent a new wave and generation of artists who explore the inter-connectedness between their identity and art practice. This is their season two (II) and a sequel to the stories that were sparked and told by those who were before them. As we see a change in shifts from those from an older perspective to newer views which face different challenges yet still recall the former since it is written in our personal histories.
Season II, at its core, is a contemporary collaboration and personification of self expression -- each of these works of art are truly personal and with their own complexities, yet we see overlap and similar themes woven through each of their creations. This group exhibition seeks to amplify Asian American voices, celebrate their stories, and support the seasons of change forevermore.
Anh Bui’s series of hauntingly tender oil paintings find liberation from social constructs using the metaphor of space which is inherently unknown and undefinable. Charlene Tan’s large-scale weaving is born through research, remembering, and celebrating the cultural threads that bring us closer to our roots. Trương Thị Thịnh's nostalgia comes through in her traditional oils on canvas as she carries on with the second life she built for her immigration journey to the US. Sound artist Sarbpreet Buttar’s composition of Nature's Song, tuned to 432 Hertz, provides an immersive soothing, and healing experience.
