The quality of the work speaks for itself. Min, previously a curator at the Drawing Center in SoHo and now an assistant professor of Asian-American studies and art history at the University of California, Davis. Each of the 17 artists has at least one parent of Asian descent; with two or three exceptions, all are under 35 and have spent most or all of their lives in the United States. Their backgrounds include roots in China, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, India, Pakistan, Iran and the Philippines, a cultural diversity so broad as to render the word Asian almost meaningless. The show covers the waterfront in terms of mediums, while issues of identity shape-shift wildly and sometimes drop entirely from sight.

Contemporary Asian American artists——with a strong sense of being American and an acute critical consciousness of world matters——grapple with issues of identity in a way that sets them apart from their predecessors. This creatively designed book focuses on recent works by seventeen Asian American artists born in the late s and s——including Patty Chang, Kaz Oshiro, and Jean Shin——to explore this pivotal generation of artists, the prevalent themes in their art, and the different ways they configure identity in their work. One Way or Another features examples of painting, sculpture, and video and installation art——many previously unpublished——and includes essays that discuss the shifting meaning of Asian America over the last decade and address the issues of mixed heritage and the emergence of an evolving Asian American identity in an increasingly globalized society.

The title of the exhibition, inspired by the s Blondie hit, suggests that there has never been a formulaic way of making or seeing art, either back then or now. Instead, these artists initiate a new set of conversations that highlight the multidimensional ways of conceptualizing and producing art today. The selected artists came of age in various parts of the United States during the late s and s. They have at their disposal a wide array of art historical practices, popular culture references, and local influences.
