About us

The Faraway Nearby (TFN) is a curatorial project that explores various ways the dialogue process unfolds among Asian women artists, fostering feelings of empathy and solidarity. TFN believes that great women artists have always existed everywhere and at all times.

About the Program

One on One Dialogue is the heart of TFN. In 2024, we will initiate a dialogue with the theme Intersectional Threads: Mapping Asian Women Artists’ Position.

TFN’s Dialogue: Respondents (TBU) invites your thoughts on conversations among TFN artists. If you wish to respond to the dialogues starting May 2024, please send a brief self-introduction to Detailed procedures and schedules will be provided via email after review.

Monthly Gathering is a small community meeting of Asian Women Artists. Taking place on the last Saturday of every month, this gathering aims to unite TFN's participating artists and those interested in the project. The objective is to facilitate information exchange, mutual support, and networking among Asian women artists in New York and beyond.
