Like Water and Oil Never Assimilating

Workshop: Wednesday, September 20, 3017 | 7-9PM

In conjunction with Tiffany Jaeyeon Shin’s exhibition, “Like Water and Oil Never Assimilating,” Parissah Lin and Michelle Ling of Yellow Jackets Collective will facilitate a discussion titled “Archival Specters: Archiving Asian American History.”

 

Parissah and Michelle of Yellow Jackets Collective will be leading a workshop on the uses of Archives in Asian American resistance and community making. We would like to invite participants to bring scraps and ephemera from femmes in their personal history, mythology, and collective history to start the process of producing a collective archive that accounts for erasure of feminized labor, and personal accounts. We will draw on historical figures and both public and private archives to talk about the use of archiving to counter dominant historical memory.
