USC Pacific Asia Museum

Nancy Foster

The mission of USC PAM is to create inspiring encounters with the art, history and culture of Asia and the Pacific that promotes intercultural understanding and elevates humanity through its collections, exhibitions and educational programming. Its permanent collection of over 15,000 objects spans more than 5,000 years, and its most recent exhibitions have traveled nationally and internationally.

The PAA grant will help fund Humaira Abid, Searching for Home. This will be Abid’s first solo exhibition to travel the world, focusing on the plight of women and girls, who account for a disproportionate number of the 27 million refugees around the globe. The show will run September 27, 2024-January 12, 2025.
