Sophia Li on Combating Anti-Asian Hate: ‘Our Fight Is Everyone’s Fight’

"Anti-Asian hate crimes impact the collective, not just one community — because it upholds institutions like white supremacy, white nationalism, and capitalism that Black Lives Matter and other movements have been trying to fight this entire year. Our fight is everyone's fight."

Journalist, filmmaker, and climate advocate Sophia Li recently spoke with us about combating anti-Asian hate and systemic racism, remembering the lessons of Black Lives Matter, the limits of social media in advocacy work, and more.

“To persevere is my living quest, with dooming and burning revelations upheld.” — anGie seah

#AsiaSocietyTriennial artist anGie seah’s work encompasses drawing, sculpture, and sound-based performance. Her fascination with mysticism and sacred music has led her to investigate the ways that ritual and mystery permeate everyday life. Filmed in the Guan Huat Dragon Kiln in Singapore, one of the few historical brick-built kilns left in Asia, Shadow has no name features performance, voice, and music. The work explores perseverance and draws inspiration from the kiln, which, for decades, has withstood temperatures of up to one thousand degrees Celsius. The artist and musician Ian Woo accompanies seah on bass guitar.

Join us on Wednesday, April 21 at 8:00 PM (ET) for the premiere of this piece, a commission by Asia Society Museum for We Do Not Dream Alone, the inaugural Asia Society Triennial. Following the performance, seah will appear in conversation with Michelle Yun Mapplethorpe, vice president for global artistic programs and director of Asia Society Museum.

“The original thing that got me excited to tell the story this way was to give life — interior life, subjective consciousness — to someone who normally doesn’t get that treatment. Willis is an Asian American, and specifically an Asian American man. For most of my life, growing up, you didn’t see a whole lot of that kind of person on the screen. And if you did, it was usually in one of these very few proscribed roles, and they were often as props. They were a punchline or fulfilling a very specific role, like ‘Here’s your food.’ So writing a character like that starting from the inside was very exciting.” — Author Charles Yu on his book “Interior Chinatown” via The New York Times

📖 Join us next month for our members-only virtual book club featuring “Interior Chinatown,” led by author Charles Yu. A 2020 National Book Award Winner and New York Times Bestseller, the deeply personal novel is a funny satire about race, pop culture, immigration, assimilation, and escaping the roles we are forced to play.

This #AsiaSocietyTriennial event, co-hosted with The Asian American Writers' Workshop, takes place on May 20 at 6:30 PM (ET). Shout-out to our other book club partners Asian American Arts Alliance and Wing On Wo & Co.!

Digital trade deal ripe for the Indo-Pacific

"The Biden administration is off to an impressive start in rebuilding alliances and partnerships in the Indo-Pacific region. But in demonstrating the United States 'is back,' this re-engagement will need to include a strong trade component if it’s to be taken seriously."

Asia Society Policy Institute Vice President Wendy Cutler co-authors an op-ed in The Hill on a digital trade agreement for the Indo-Pacific region.

This Asian pact underscores how in the absence of U.S. leadership there is a real risk of further lowering of ambition in trade agreements.

Please join us for A BAC online discussion with Ven. Bhikkhu Bodhi Tuesday Nov 17, 7:30pm ET Where Do We Go From Here? Following a Long-Range Vision in an Age of Empty Promises and Instant Expectations. Those of us who adhere to progressive social and political ideals may feel discouraged when the political landscape looks bleak and the rules of the game prize expediency over integrity, empty promises over fundamental transformation. However, we cannot give up hope, while bearing in mind that hope in itself is not sufficient to bring about the fulfillment of our goals. We also need to clearly articulate our ideals, uncover the obstacles to their fulfillment, and advocate for the kind of long-range changes that will promote the emergence of a social order that corresponds to our deep aspirations. Join the online Zoom event Nov 17. using this link. https://columbiauniversity.zoom.us/j/91015099710?pwd=cWFnLzlFQS9yejhwZVRJbGJGdDFEZz09 See Facebook event link below: https://www.facebook.com/buddhistaction/posts/820217218740358
THANGKA WEBINAR 1.5 hour webinar in response to questions that monastics, scholars, collectors, museum professionals and meditators ask. Includes description of thangka form, history, usage, text/thangka relationship, safe storage, and respectful choices in preservation. Based on 50 years of thangka research. Further online thangka events will follow in October. This is a direct link to the webinar:
This original interview took place before MULAN started streaming -- before the reviews came out, and the attendant flurry of social media posts. As I told Jiayun, a lot can happen in a week! Suddenly the movie is coming under attack for reasons that have nothing to do with the actual content but with the collaborating parties. It's very challenging to be Asian American, particularly Chinese-American, these days. We have to prioritize and pick our battles. One minute we want to celebrate the flourishing of Asian talent on screen-- a tough battle where we have just begun to make great strides -- but the next, by doing so we may be called out for supporting police brutality or genocide. It's kind of a no-win situation.
So excited to have all these joyful, lucky ladies together on one screen, with Goddess Amy! Tune in tomorrow at 5PM PT.
May 20: Asia Society New York WEBCAST - Telling Stories: #CAMBODIANROCKBANDNYC's Francis Jue and Lauren Yee In Conversation With Diep Tran https://wp.me/p8ilTC-6s3 #aapi #aapiheritagemonth #apahm2020 #asianamericanplaywrights #asianamericanactors #asianamericanstories
I hope everyone from the Asia Society of New York is staying safe inside and practicing their social distancing. As a way to keep myself busy, I just subscribed to this movie streaming platform called Film Festival Flix. I have found so many interesting films to keep me as well as my family entertained during quarantine. One movie I definitely want to watch tonight is this Korean film called Poetry. I just watched the trailer and the storyline seems incredible. I would definitely subscribe to Film Festival Flix to watch Poetry as well as searching through other amazing movies on the platform.
I was there with my family tonight around 7:30 or so and why was the museum closed? The website does not say anything about the early closure of tonight (Friday night). There were no posted signs, nor recorded messages when I called in front of the museum. It was so strange and we were very very disappointed.
Why does Asia Society New York feel it is not important enough to organize & resist the Indian state’s (ala Nuremberg laws) unconstitutional, outright discriminatory CAA & the anticipated dehumanizing NRC. Have you made any effort that I may have missed? I don’t see any commentary or any events on your page. Who are we scared of? What is basic state-sponsored violation of human rights not important to you?
