Japanese American National Museum

Pasadena Art Alliance

The Japanese American National Museum is one of the nation’s premier culturally specific museums. Through the building of a comprehensive collection of material culture and development of multi-faceted exhibitions, educational activities, public programs and publications, the Museum preserves and shares for current and future generations the rich and diverse stories of Japanese Americans for national and international audiences alike.

The grant-supported exhibition, Transpacific Borderlands: The Art of Japanese Diaspora in Lima, LA, Mexico City & Sao Paulo, will expand the understanding of what constitutes Latin American art by highlighting the experiences of four historical and thirteen contemporary artists of Japanese ancestry who were born, raised, or are living in either Latin America or predominantly Latin American neighborhoods of Southern California. The exhibition will be held from September 16, 2017 through February 25, 2018.
