Transpacific Borderlands: The Japanese Diaspora in Latin America

As part of the Getty's Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA initiative, the Japanese American National Museum (JANM) will be hosting an art exhibition featuring works by artists of Japanese heritage who have ties to Latin America.

The exhibit, "Transpacific Borderlands: The Art of Japanese Diaspora in Lima, Los Angeles, Mexico City, and São Paulo," will open Sunday, September 17, 2017 and run through February 25, 2018.

The exhibition aims to "contribute to a broader reconsideration of identity in a world where the meanings of race and ethnicity are constantly evolving, and where artists often inhabit dynamic transnational spaces."
