Join us for a virtual talk by artist and filmmaker Alisa Yang (U-M Stamps School of Art & Design MFA’16) whose research based practice explores alternative ways art can be a currency for care. This event kicks off the 2022 Ann Arbor Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon and will be followed by a public Q&A.  

Centering the body as a site of geopolitical and social conditionings, Yang works across video, installation, and situational specific projects in orienting oneself towards social change. Her films focus on the experiences of Asian women navigating cultural identity and generational trauma, mining personal narratives with humor and vulnerability.
