The Future is NOW explores the ways in which contemporary Asian American artists explore, engage, reflect and critique their relationship to the past, present and future.  Working with a do-it-yourself directness, the artists in The Future is NOW all draw from their knowledge and experiences to reveal alternative and imaginary narratives, alive with complexity, humor and spirit. In the process, they present us with a skillful meditation on this present moment.  

The exhibition features works in a variety of media by an acclaimed group of artists: Kim Anno, Michael Arcega appears courtesy of Marx & Zavattero, Lenore Chinn, Binh Danh, Taraneh Hemami, Nancy Hom, Justin Hoover, Su-Chen Hung, Betty Kano, Hung Liu, Gabby Miller, Ranu Mukherjee, Pallavi Sharma, Tina Takemoto, Truong Tran, Carlos Villa and Flo Oy Wong. Curated by Jennifer Banta with Exhibit Consultation and Design by Matt McKinley.

Supported by the San Francisco Arts Commission, California Arts Council, SOMArts Cultural Center and the Zellerbach Family Foundation.
