“In The Future...Our Asian Community is Embraced As Their Whole Selves” is a billboard that is a part of a series of public art installations in NYC and Washington DC that envision a loving future for Asian communities without anti-Asian violence and white supremacy. In this future, elders and youth are seen as their whole selves, and learn how to protect each other without relying on police, binaries, and borders. With bold type inspired by karaoke subtitles, the portraits in this billboard feature an Asian American mother and daughter from Jess X. Snow's film, Afterearth, caught in a moment of solace and reflection.
