Happy birthday Isamu Noguchi! πŸŽˆπŸŽ‰In this photo, Noguchi works on his stainless steel relief sculpture News for the Associated Press Building. Read his 1973 oral history interview conducted for the Archives of American Art here: s.si.edu/2fhaASp. #artistsbirthdays #hardatwork #sculpture #oralhistory #asianamericanartists

Reminiscing with one of my favorite artists growing up! I've visited her booth for the past 7 years at #SDCC ❀️ #stayangry #lelalee #angrylittleasiangirl #asianamericanartists

Excited for PEER GYNT tonight! #mayitheatre #asianamericanartists

Had the honor of having the talented and brilliantly insightful @djphatrick stop by for an afternoon session and BBQ lunch for my upcoming album. Great convo about world domination one step at a time. πŸ™πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ”₯πŸ”₯ #annonemusic #asianamericanartists #djphatrick #asianamericanhiphop

My one-woman play Body Of Work has advanced to FronteraFest's Best of Fest. I've been invited to do an encore performance with my fellow Wildcard artists this Thursday. A few tickets are still available. So if you didn't catch it the first time, please come out and support #livetheatre #atxtheatre #womenartists #asianamericanartists #storytellers

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!

I was so thrilled that @stellaabreradetsky came to see us @kingandibway. She is the embodiment of what a true artist should be: talented, humble, beautiful, inspiring. I have watched her dance at @abtofficial over the years. I know that with Stella as my guide, I will be witness to a compelling life/journey unfolding on the stage. #asianamericanartists #inspiration #balletmeetsbroadway

Last night was magical AF and I haven't had time to really sit in my feelings about it all. When @seanmiura brought @tingrolls @sslx95 and I together, I knew we were about to embark on this crazy, fun, vulnerable, yet therapeutic journey and really challenge and push ourselves in our craft. As often as I've been around in community spaces, I've actually never performed at Tuesday Night Cafe before, so it was an incredible honor to headline and share that stage with my talented friends. ❀️ This was over 10 min of complete improv/freestyle. I've never freestyled that long in front of a live audience before and the feeling was exhilarating. I know movement artists aren't very common in these spaces, so I'm super grateful for all the love I got last night. Thank you for all your support. I never would have been able to do all that if it wasn't for my strong community of friends and family who truly support my existence and growth. β€’
Yes we are working on filming this so you can experience the magic again and again. πŸ˜‰βœ¨
β€’
And just another huge thank you to @tnproject for cultivating this space. It is so needed and I am so freakin' grateful. And of course.. thank you to EVERYONE who watched our performance. Live performance art isn't complete without an audience who's engaged and feeding us energy so I just want to say thank you for sharing that moment with us. 😌
β€’
Oh and special shoutout to my brother from another mother @misterjbeezy for recording this and being my forever hypeman. 😘😘😘 Love you!

Also, can we talk about how America AF this is? Daughter of immigrant shaking her ass in front of graffiti that says Trump? LOL. πŸ˜‚

Happy Monday. May you also have a great week of shaking your ass in front of the face of injustice.
