This exhibit celebrates the threads that keep us connected to our cultural traditions by presenting works of artists who use traditional elements from their cultures to address contemporary issues. The artists draw from a vast variety of cultures: San Francisco’s Chinatown, the murals of East Los Angeles, Japanese American internment camps, Hawaii, the Mexico/ United States border, Guatemala, Iran, Japan, and West Africa. The traditional is used as inspiration, material and/or technique, as these artists help us break the boundaries of time and space.

This exhibition is being held in conjunction with Performing Diaspora, CounterPULSE’s festival featuring dance, music, theater, media and interdisciplinary artists who are using traditional forms as a basis for experiment and innovation. Join the conversation at
