Silent stories

Author Angel Velasco Shaw

Not on view

"Silent Stories grew out of a series of realizations about myself as a first generation Filipino-American, a woman, and an artist. The piece was first presented at California Institute of the Arts in December of 1982, in a photographic/audio installation. The eighteen people chosen to be interviewed ranged from 18 to 35 years of age... from different departments within the institute... I chose participants who were either native-born Asians, American-born Asians, or part Asian and part Caucasian. Silent Stories is a sampling of emotions and experiences about being a part of the American culture as subjects of the cultural melting pot."-- Artist's statement (p. 5).
