Pop Up Editorial at Lips Uncurled, Eyes Forward

Lips Uncurled, Eyes Forward, was a first of its kind AAPI social art and cultural awareness exhibition dreamed up by Quynh-Mai Nguyen. The day long event held at the Mexican Heritage Plaza focused on creating safe spaces for the the Asian community to write their own narrative through art and performance against the narrative that media continues to write for them. Check out the conversation that sparked from this event across different generations.



Lips Uncurled Eyes Forward – an Asian American Pacific Islander social art and cultural awareness exhibition featured art, poetry, and writing workshops, performances, and presentations that explored issues surrounding identity, silent prejudice, and cultural homogeneity within the Asian narrative.
