Raise Your Voice with Amanda Phingbodhipakkiya

Join us for the opening celebration for Raise Your Voice, artist Amanda Phingbodhipakkiya’s new installation. Phingbodhipakkiya will join Carmelyn P. Malalis, former NYC Commissioner of Human Rights, and MCNY curator Sarah Seidman for a talk about the intersection between public art and human rights — and the resilience of the city’s Asian American and Pacific Islander communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. Short performance by Sugar Vendil and Janelle Lawrence from their new BĀS project.  Reception to follow.

Raise Your Voice is a new installation which invites audiences to engage with their own powers of advocacy in the Museum’s ongoing Activist New York exhibition. Phingbodhipakkiya developed her visual series “I Still Believe in Our City” (2020) as an artist-in-residence with the NYC Commission on Human Rights in order to address the rise in anti-Asian harassment and violence during the COVID-19 crisis. The series and subsequent projects appeared in public transit and other public spaces to reclaim space, resist stereotypes, and celebrate longstanding AAPI contributions to New York City past and present.

BĀS is a Black and Asian bridging project conceived by Sugar Vendil and Janelle Lawrence which seeks to address racial tensions and foster mutual understanding, empathy, and healing through active listening and storytelling.
