Happy New Year! In anticipation of the upcoming opening of our Spring 2019 gallery exhibition, here’s a throwback to our Summer 2013 gallery exhibition, In Plain Sight: Isaac Lin. Employing repetitive surface markings on paintings, drawings, sculptures, and installations, Philadelphia-based artist Isaac Tin Wei Lin (@isaactinweilin ) attempted to conjure the sublime. Informed by World War II-era submarine camafloging techniques, these markings led an exploration in how someone or something can be both highly visible and invisible at the same time. Keep a look out for more info about our new exhibit in the New Year! (📷: FACE SHARP)
⭐️ Omikuji Fortune ————————————————- Ok now...no forget to wash ‘dem hands❗️ ———————————————— Happy New Year from Japan❗️The small piece of paper is called a Omikuji fortune. You can pay 100 yen to guarantee a good year. Or shake the canister to take your chances. Got a bad one❓Walk straight to the line over there and tie it up. Don’t pass go. ———————————————————- ⭐️ It’s something you never really notice unless: A. You got a bad fortune. —————————- B. You got a bad fortune because you didn’t wash your hands before entering the temple ‘cause it’s cold. ———————————————- C. No cookie❗️Wrong country, you❗️😜 ————————— D. All of the above. —————————————————- (pics by Fujifilm X-T3)

Top 9. Thank you 2018 for all of the lessons and all of the inspiration! I met and worked with some of the greatest people. Thank you. Here is to being unapologetically layered in 2019. It’s been a long time coming. To all of us, our layers and complexities, our challenges and our healing. Here is to us thriving - in our entireties. No filter. All power. 🙏🏽 Towards freedom. We are more powerful than we imagined - in our grace and humility; our talents, resources and experiences; our kindred and squads; our struggles and our lessons. Imagine even more than you thought was possible then embody all of that freedom as truth.

📚🎆📚🎇📚 Happy New Year’s Eve! Tomorrow is the (western) New Year, and I have found a book for the day! Many Asian cultures have their own New Year/Spring Festival celebration dates, based on the Lunar calendar. However, Japan also celebrates on Jan 1. If any Japanese/Japanese American readers have more information about the origins of the Japanese New Year, please let me know! Here is a book that shares Japanese traditions for the New Year, through the eyes of a young adopted Japanese American child. A Hawai’i Japanese New Year with Yuki-chan Tokie Ching Kerina Salazar Everyone have a wonderful and safe celebration! . . . . . #weneeddiversebooks #ownvoices #diversekidlit #asiankidlit #aapi #japaneseamerican #newyear #readyourworld #raiseareader #raisealeader #adopted #diversebooksmatter #diverseauthorsmatter #representationmatters #picturebookstagram #aapiholidaybookcountdown #holidaybookaday

New year, new sketchbook. On the inside cover I’ve added this reflective surface with my first goal of 2019. What I’ve learned this year in therapy is that I want so badly to be the hero I needed when I was younger; a strong protector of a scared, timid, and guarded child who had experienced so many negative reinforcements for speaking up and being himself that he’s dangerously learned to bottle up all his pain and fear. Even in learning this about myself this year, I have cowered and lacked the strength to overcome in situations that have demanded it (luckily not every situation, but enough to realize it remains a problem.) I frequently speak about marginalized groups and political activism yet feel like a failure and hypocrite for my inability to be much more confrontational. Despite seeing more of my vulnerability as a strength, a large part of me feels so small and pathetic having to admit how imperfect I am, a failure I’ve been, and how unheroic I have been all these years, and how keeping it in can turn me toxic, creating a villain from a victim. 2019 looks really challenging; I have to learn to speak up, be myself, learn courage, bravery, strength, value, and humility. Not only to be a hero for my younger self but also my current and future selves. What I have also learned more and more this year is the resilience of a PilipinX and that somewhere inside me exists the blueprints not only of survivors but of warriors who have overcome everything and anything. #art #drawing #sketchbook #blackandwhite #newyear #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #fightthestigma #fightthepower #resist #poc #aapi #pilipinx #filipinoamerican #2019 #2019goals #makibaka #selfcare #selflove #courage #speakup
Kat looks back at how much her father and the entire family missed because of all of the inaccurate information surrounding his #hepatitis B and how it is spread. Today she is a dedicated hep B advocate. As the New Year approaches, let us all make a commitment to include everyone at our table and to start talking about and educating people about #hepB . #AAPI #API #newyear #happynewyear http://ow.ly/gLEA50jPMO5

I haven't felt great about my physical self recently. All of my medical setbacks have caused me to often feel like I am nothing more than a science experiment wasting away in a hospital bed. The visibility of my picc line has made me uncomfortable wearing short sleeve shirts lately, but when I found this one in my closet, it felt a little too ironic not to wear for that reason. _ All bodies are good bodies. Mine is equally good and deserving of equal love at every stage and in every form. Period. At many points during the past few months I have felt like it was my enemy, but really, it has proven to be the most resilliant ally that I have. No matter what changes 2019 brings to my physical form, I hope it also grows my unconditional love for this part of myself. _ 👕: @blofishclothing 📸: @impossible_grl19
"The Great Wave off Kanagawa" by Hokusai Hello. I really made this account to just discuss my interests, rant, and I also want to get back into politics and all that jazz. An asian American activist, I'm just trying to find my identity. I would believe I'm right leaning, which is difficult to discuss with the people around me since I'm scared to talk about my opinion to others. I hope I'm able to meet new people, discover new ideas, be able to express myself, and inspire others. Recently, I've been intrigued by japanese aesthetics. Their traditional art is really cool. Shoganai means "it cant be helped". And I plan on expanding that I guess. . . partners : @tequila.politics . . #politics #politigram #republican #democrat #blm #feminism #asianactivism #aapi #lgbt #metoo #rightwing #america #usa #japan #traditionaljapan

⭐️ ‘Twas the Night before... ————————————————- With these fearsome lions guarding the shrine there be no mice running around. 😆 ———————————————— Hi from Kanagawa, Japan❗️I’m at a local Shinto shrine. Guarding the place are two Shi Shi Lions. One with its mouth open and the other closed. There’s a few theories of the reason why. I like the one that says its open to scare off the bad spirits. And closed to keep in the good spirits. ———————————————— ⭐️ It’s something you never really notice unless: A. A gambling man might take the Okinawan Shisa lion over the Japanese Shi Shi lion. 😄 B. Wow❗️These stone lions are probably older then before the USA became a country. 🧐 C. The iPhone SE camera, made by Sony, ain’t half bad. 🤩 D. All of the above. ————————————————- (Pics by Fujifilm X-T3 and iPhone SE)

Got zero sleep last night because I was hit with one of the worst dreams I’ve ever had, so I thought bringing my camera along during 샤부 샤부 ingredient hunting would make me feel better 🙃. Walking into one of these markets always feels a little like going back to the Philippines, but seeing the word “oriental” reminds me where I am lol. I forgot what the first green pic is, but the bumpy cucumber-looking thing is Indian bitter melon and then of course, nopales 🌵. I couldn’t figure out what the little trees were for the life of me, but I don’t think I’m missing out so don’t @ me!!!!
Dudes, 2018 was a giant flaming, reckless ass dumpster fire dressed up in a millennial pink bow. It all looked kinda nice from the outside but Instagram is not real life and professional achievements masked personal shortcomings. It was a precariously constructed disasterpiece. There are a few things I’m proud of, though! I made up with some old dear friends, I made some new dear friends, and dropped 180 lbs of dead weight 😏. I wrote about things I care about and fell back in love with words and words and words. my early forecast projects a brewing shit storm in those first few months of 2019. But I think I’m better equipped to deal with it all now. I scribbled down a list of everything I want to achieve in the first half of the year. You better believe it’s all going to come true. I’ll be ruthless and you should be scared. 2019, let’s fucking go. “It’s all happening.” 🖤 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #instapic #picoftheday #bestnine2018 #bestof2018 #2018bestnine #2018 #reflection #2019 #newyearsresolution #aapi #goals #instagood #decemberreflections2018

San Gabriel Valley leaders gathered earlier this month to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the repeal of the Chinese Exclusion Act, and to warn against repeating history. – Signed into law in 1882, the Chinese Exclusion Act prohibited all immigration of Chinese laborers into the United States. The exclusion act remains the first and only U.S. law to prevent all members of a single ethnic group from immigrating, until its repeal by the 1943 Magnuson Act. – US Representative Judy Chu (CA-27) connected the historic experience of Chinese Americans to today’s anti-immigrant policies, highlighting the deplorable conditions faced by migrant children detained at the U.S. border in Texas. – Former CA state Assemblyman Mike Eng, who served as master of ceremonies for the event, said, “History is not changed because an elected official stands and says it should be changed. History is changed because of the hundreds, many times thousands, of unsung heroes who step up and say, ‘No more, never again.’” – [Photo via Phoenix Tso] – #channelcb #news #aapi #culture #asianamerican #usnews #新闻 #뉴스 #chineseamerican #immigration #usmexicoborder

Keep expanding your horizon, decolonize your mind, and cross borders." -Yuri Kochiyama . Yuri Kochiyama worked with Malcolm X and Black Power organizations. Leader of the Asian American and redress movements in New York City. During World War II, she organized an extensive letter writing campaign to Nisei soldiers. .

A new year brings a fresh start. We’re taking stock of all that we’ve accomplished this past year but also over the last 25 years. The reason we’re still standing against all the odds, is because of you. The Initiative is YOU and together, we make it stronger. Our spaces are mere blank canvases until we fill them with the work of our artists, partner collaborations, and cultural exchange among and across different communities. Nothing happens without your support. Please consider making a gift today before 2018 ends. Link in profile. #support #supportus #seasonofgiving
Hi! I made this for my problematic faves. This is a legit issue. Look, I love all y’all weeaboo dorks, but it’s a pain in the ass to see so many non-AAPI performers taking up space where actual Asian-Americans could express their legitimate cultural heritage through drag performance. It’s one thing to appreciate Japanese culture and experience it correctly through the guidance of someone who is Japanese. It’s another thing to completely rip off of other people because you lack the creativity and talent to be original. If y’all ever have questions, just DM me babes ♥️
As we get ready to ring in the #newyear , let’s take a quick look back at our successful 2018! Thanks to all of our wonderful partners for making this possible! #hepatitisb #AAPI #HBV
Repost @channelcb “Towards Equality,” a new exhibit at @chsamuseum in San Francisco, highlights the accomplishments of California’s Chinese-American women in education, politics, finance, and business– as well as their pivotal role as matriarchs. – The exhibit recognizes the first American-born Chinese woman in San Francisco: Chew Fong Law, born in 1869. – It also recognizes Mary Tape, a Chinese immigrant who sued the San Francisco Board of Education in 1884 for refusing to enroll her daughter in school. The California Supreme Court ruled in Mary’s favor, stating that denying her daughter access would be unconstitutional. – Visit @chsamuseum or chsa.org for more information. – #channelcb #news #aapi #culture #asianamerican #usnews #新闻 #뉴스 #chineseamerican

Reflecting on my experiences as an API in STEM: growing up I wanted to be an artist, a writer. But along the way, I made the choice to be an engineer. Good or bad, this decision was the most pivotal decision of my life, shaping how I view the world and the impact I want to leave on it. Thank you @georgetownaasa for the opportunity to share my story. 📸Eric #aapi #stemgirls #naaapdc
I am so honored to have my friend @kulkarniforcongress supporting me in my endeavor to run for #sugarland District 2 city council. After reading the article in @houstonchron about his race and the strides that the #aapi community made in #txst22 , I hope he will run again. #sriprestonkulkarni #nabilasugarland #sugarlandtx #instapolitics #instanews #wecandoit #instapower #instasupport

At the end of October, BAAFF was selected as one of the 10 recipient film festivals for the FFA/SIO Diversity Pass Program, an initiative between the Film Festival Alliance and Sundance Industry Office to encourage and cultivate diversity within the film festival industry. As part of our overarching fundraising goal “$10k for 10 Years,” we need your help in raising $6000 before January 2019 to cover housing costs and conference fees for a delegation from BAAFF to attend the 2019 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. / / TODAY Facebook is partnering with PayPal to match donations made on Facebook to nonprofits up to a total of $7 million. Please consider supporting BAAFF on #GivingTuesday , too, and help us reach our 10 Year Anniversary fundraising goal of "$10k for 10 Years" so that we can continue to grow and bring empowering films that showcase the diversity of the API experience to audiences in Boston. Every dollar you give will be doubled thanks to Facebook and Paypal's 1:1 matching donations, so your contribution will go farther in supporting independent Asian Pacific American filmmaking.
