Asian Art Museum debuts exciting, emotional short works from West to East Asia — and beyond. After Hope: Videos of Resistance invites audiences to immerse themselves in a new kind of multimedia experience, a series of 54 short videos, from over 60 artists, that explore the role of hope in contemporary art and activism.
After Hope is organized by Abby Chen, head of contemporary art at the Asian Art Museum; Padma Maitland, assistant professor of architectural history and theory at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo; and Viv Liu, research assistant for contemporary art at the Asian Art Museum. Part of a three-part project, After Hope: Videos of Resistance showcases how relevant and accessible video artworks convey the power and potential of global solidarity.
