I'm still thinking about the inspiring studio visit with Nancy Uyemura I was lucky to be a part of on Thursday night. Her building in the Arts District in downtown LA was recently sold and she and other artists, some of whom like her have had studios there for 30+ years, will have to move out. We got a chance to see her work and archival materials from Gallery 4 which she ran with painter Matsumi Kanemitsu in the 80s and featured the work of Japanese, Japanese American, and LA artists. Many thanks to @chanblob for organizing! . . . #asianamericanartists#losangelesartist#dtlaartsdistrict

"I think that there's so many facets of society, and so many people who have not yet had a voice... to be able to hold a mirror up to those people and have the reflection be accurate... would be really bleeping awesome." - Diane Chen, MAKER • follow her @dianechen51 • learn more about her work @multihyphenate_productions • 📷 by SEQUIN • #seewecan#sequinMAKERS
"I always wanna try and tell stories about the Othered, the under-represented, the people that we haven't gotten to hear from -- accurately -- who never had the privilege of varied representation" - Diane Chen • follow her @dianechen51 • learn more at diane-chen.com #seewecan
