Based on the Pick Museum of Anthropology’s 2015 exhibition, Storytelling: Hmong American Voices, and curated in collaboration with a Hmong Community Advisory Council, In/Visibility: Hmong America and the Art of Storytelling explores Hmong American identity, the politics of displacement and what it means to belong. Featuring first-person reflections, textiles, and artwork by Aurora native and Waubonsee Community College alumna, J. Tshab Her, this exhibit considers how Hmong life has changed since refugees first entered the United States in the 1970s and what it means to be Hmong American today.
In/Visibility: Hmong American and the Art of Storytelling is on exhibition at the Aurora Downtown Campus Library until Saturday, April 14th, 2018. Students, faculty, staff and community members are welcome to view the exhibit during the library’s normal hours of operation.
