New York, NY – From August 26 to September 8, 2023, Li Tang proudly presents a retrospective exhibition featuring works by twenty-seven Asian artists, each at varying stages of their careers and with diverse creative focuses.

Spanning from the vibrant streets of New York City to the glamorous landscapes of Los Angeles, and from the lively scenes of Atlanta to the indomitable spirit of Detroit, Asian creatives have left their marks. From time to time, they often yearn for a place to resonate as home. This exhibition was curated within this context, with the intention of creating a home for Asian creatives. It provides artists with a protective, collective, and innovative space to express their ideas and creations.

Collectively, these artists have created a portrait that captures how the influence of the Asian diaspora shapes the ever-evolving contemporary art world.
