As VPAM gets closer to reopening its doors to the public we would like to highlight some past artists who have exhibited their work with us throughout the years. Today we are featuring Peter Wu+ whose “Rise of the Fly II'' exhibition was on view at VPAM in 2016.

“Peter’s multifaceted, reflexive environments inspire immediate curiosity that holds visitors captive as he leads us through the covert layers and themes of his work,” said Rebeca Vega, VPAM Registrar/Exhibitions Coordinator and Guest Services Manager.

“His exhibition at VPAM juxtaposed dissected imagery and audio from two renditions of the cult classic ‘The Fly’ to draw a connection between the collective fears of science and technology of the Cold War 1950s and the mass hysteria and paranoia of the AIDS epidemic of the 1980s— two instances in American history when society’s fear of the unknown ignited a culture of division and intolerance.”

Thank you, Peter, for allowing us to feature you on our channels. Revisit “Rise of the Fly II” and other exhibitions by visiting our website:

Today we take a look into our archives to celebrate and highlight some of the artists who we have exhibited with us. First up is Ranu Mukherjee whose work was part of the “Soul Mining” group exhibition at VPAM in 2018.

“Ranu’s practice brilliantly weaves together diverse interests and concerns associated with colonial legacy, contemporary struggle, and ecological futures.” said Joseph Valencia, VPAM Exhibitions and Programs Manager. “Her specific works in ‘Soul Mining’ layered images in film, painting, drawing, and cloth to undermine the narrative of Manifest Destiny and spotlight the history, labor, and exclusion of Chinese immigrants in the American West during the 19th and 20th centuries.”

Thank you, Ranu, for allowing us to feature you on our channels. Revisit “Soul Mining” and other exhibitions by visiting our website:

Please join us in congratulating our Development Manager Sonia Mak on her new appointment as Advancement Officer for Institutional Giving at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.

During her two-year tenure at VPAM, Sonia helped bolster our fundraising activities, including the launch of the annual Spring Gala and Year End Giving campaigns. Sonia co-authored and secured major grants to support the museum’s general operations, special exhibitions, and educational programs, including the Museum Studies Certificate Program at East Los Angeles College. She also supported communications at the museum and helped cultivate new institutional partnerships, campus relationships, and individual donors, all aimed at expanding the reach and impact of the museum’s important work.

We will miss working alongside Sonia but wish her the best on her next journey! Thank you, Sonia, for being a part of #TeamVPAM ✨
