Join The 1990 Institute at the Asian Art Museum for “Hella Asians on TV”!
It’s back! ABC’s landmark series “Fresh off the Boat” has been renewed for a second season. It’s impossible not to adore incredulous 12-year-old hip-hop fanatic Eddie Huang and his family as they build their lives in Orlando, Florida, with sass, class and a uniquely critical perspective that has never been seen from an immigrant family. Hyphen magazine and the Asian Art Museum invite you to an advance screening of a new episode of “Fresh Off the Boat,” followed by a conversation about the shifts and challenges in representing the Asian Pacific Islander American experience in mainstream media. Participants include comedian Jenny Yang, comedian and performance artist Kristina Wong and authorJeff Chang.
