About us

The Faraway Nearby (TFN) is a dialogue 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

In Dialogue is the heart of TFN. In 2024, we will initiate a dialogue with the theme Intersectional Threads: Mapping Asian Women Artists’ Position. This dialogue will explore the diverse experiences and perspectives of Asian women artists, offering a platform for their voices and stories.

In Response to our artists dialogues, we have asked our community members to share their reflections on each weeks conversation. These contributions will extend the discourse, providing a richer and more comprehensive understanding of the themes discussed.

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.
