No Word for "Art": 

Contemporary Hmong-American Art in Northern California

July 29-September 26, 2021

Chico, CA - The concept for No Word for "Art" came from Hmong-American artist and co-curator, Elizabeth Lee.  There is no word for "art" in the Hmong language, which can make it difficult to explain what fine art is to older Hmong generations.  Many Hmong-American youth are discouraged from creative careers by the older members of the family.  This is a story that is unfortunately repeated across cultures currently, and many people are afraid to pursue art as their career though it is their passion.  

As a society, how do we value art? This exhibition will explore the complexities of Hmong-American identity from the perspective of artists throughout the north state, and provide opportunities for conversations regarding the significance of art.

Co-Curators: Elizabeth Lee and Stacey Lo

No Word for “Art” is sponsored by KAWM.  This exhibition is made possible by funding from Calhumanities.
