Spotlight On: AAPI Heritage Month

This May, we're spotlighting Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, a time to reflect and celebrate the contributions and influence of folks in the AAPI community. Make sure to join us for free in-person programming at the Atrium, including: a K-Pop dance party with DJ KDOTLIM, readings and conversation with a MacArthur Grant winner, and a musical performance of Japanese flutes and percussion by Kaoru Watanabe. Inspired by her Southeast Asian heritage, artist Amanda Phingbodhipakkiya presents GATHER: A series of monuments and rituals with scheduled participatory events and daily viewing hours from May 14–July 3. We also invite you to explore the beautifully varied on-demand works brought to life by AAPI artists from all different cultures and contexts. Like our spotlights on other identities this year, these themes are neither mutually exclusive nor limited to a single month; they cross over, connect, and build on one another. We hope you revisit this page beyond this month to honor AAPI communities and their tremendous impact on the arts.

Major support for Lincoln Center’s AAPI Campaign is provided by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. AAPI programming is also supported by Angela Chao and Jim Breyer
