The works of Asian artists Sandra Low, Keiko Fukazawa, and Kim-Trang Tran will be featured in a new USC Pacific Asia Museum exhibition, “Off Kilter: Power and Pathos at USC PAM,” opening on Friday, July 22.
“Off Kilter” highlights the artists’ shared adventurous and experimental attitudes towards their chosen mediums and uncanny ability to address socio-political issues with immediacy, power, and pathos. Using satire and critical commentary, their work underscores the power of women of color in shaping social change.
