No Ocean Between Us: Art of Asian Diasporas in Latin America & The Caribbean, 1945–Present

"No Ocean Between Us: Art of Asian Diasporas in Latin America & The Caribbean, 1945–Present" features approximately 65 works of modern and contemporary art by Latin American and Caribbean artists of Asian descent. This exhibition highlights artists whose work reflects the global dialogues between their Asian heritages and their Latin American or Caribbean identities, as well as the major artistic movements of their times. Included in the exhibition are paintings, works on paper, sculptures, and mixed media works by artists from Argentina, Brazil, Cuba, Guyana, Mexico, Panama, Suriname, and Trinidad and Tobago. "No Ocean Between Us" provides context to understanding the complex and multifaceted nature of cultural diversity in modern Latin American and Caribbean societies. The exhibition allows the viewer to explore how an artist’s unique experience of migration shaped their work. Inspired by the permanent collection of the Art Museum of the Americas of the Organization of American States, the exhibition features works by Brazilian artists Manabu Mabe, Tomie Ohtake, Yukata Toyota, Tikashi Fukushima, and Kazuo Wakabashi; Argentine artist Kasuya Sakai; Peruvian artists Venancio Shinki, Arturo Kubotta, Carlos Runcie Tanaka, and Eduardo Tokeshi; Trinidadian artist M.P. Alladin; Mexican artist Luis Nishizawa; Cuban artist Wifredo Lam; and Surinamese artist Soeki Irodikromo.
