In Transit, SGC International 2020
As immigrants, international students, travelers, and dual-citizens participants may have at some point been affected by various changing governmental policies or other restrictions that have impacted their ability to travel within the boundaries of the United States and beyond. These life experiences and faced encounters bring to question our identities and the effects of our surrounding environments.
“In Transit” further looks to be inclusive to working artists that have been constrained by the sensitivities and alarms of being restrained by a visa status that does not allow them to leave the continental upper 48 states or other countries with peace of mind. In effect, restricting numerous artists within our community from physically attending a conference located in Puerto Rico. (A Commonwealth of the U.S. with a history of colonization that celebrates a distinct mixture of Taino, Spanish and African roots.)
In support of a growing international organization and the all-encompassing medium of print, we strive to celebrate and promote diversity in the arts.

Neighborhood Workshop features works by multi-disciplinary contemporary artists that respond to the dynamics of the neighborhoods they live in. Some paint a portrait of what they see or would like to see in their community. Others experiment with creative interventions to shift the social or physical landscape. This exhibition shows an array of approaches from Asian Arts Initiative’s current and past Social Practice Lab artists-in-residence, alongside fellow Philadelphia-based artists. The exhibition also turns Asian Arts Initiative’s gallery into a workshop space to explore and construct work that connects to our immediate neighborhood and the communities that comprise our diverse city.
Join us First Fridays from September through November for a series of live artist-led workshops and demonstrations!

Yangbin Park’s artistic endeavor to reflect on a society through the medium of individuals has been led by a social introspection.
Here he unfolds the intersection between individual and society, presenting events that epitomize the elusive link we have within our societies.
By contemplating how a social sphere influences people both at spatial and psychological levels, he presents memories of the events that continue to reverberate through the present, connoting our multi-layered relationship to the society.
Through his introspection of the momentous period symbolized by 1988 Seoul Olympic, Yangbin provides a scopic window, through which our existence vis-à-vis a collective identity, desire vis-à-vis a social aspiration are shone.

ETHNOSCAPES is an International photo exhibition investigating issues of (social) de-territorialization, migration, and hybrid identities. With the rapidly expanding forces of globalization, borders appear to be col
lapsing in a whirlwind of new technologies and communication possibilities. In some ways, we are experiencing possibilities of mobility never seen before, though, simultaneously, national bor-ders are increasingly constricted, surveillance intensified, and immigrant rights deflated. Through the diverse lens of 18 international artists, this exhibition ex-amines the ambiguity of living in constant cross-cultural transit, as well as ex-plores the contradictory regimes of (im)mobility and trans-nationality in today’s globalized World.
