Wonder Women

Inspired by “Wonder Woman,” a poem by celebrated writer Genny Lim, this group exhibition spotlights Asian American and diasporic women and non-binary artists pondering themes of wonder, self, and identity. Jeffrey Deitch managing director Kathy Huang, who curated the show, drew particular inspiration by how Lim’s poem centers Asian women and explores the possible commonalities between them. “The increasing violence against Asians Americans, particularly against Asian women and the elderly, emphasizes the need to tell our own stories,” Huang says. “Figuration allows the artists to present themselves, their communities, and their histories on their own terms.”
