Stop by the Queens Museum of Art to see “Asian Pacifically New York,” a photo exhibit by veteran AAJAer and photographer Corky Lee. For forty years, Lee documents the Asian American community set in backdrop of New York. His stunning contemporary images challenge centuries-old ideologies and representations, while reconstructing and redefining the Asian American population. The exhibition is held from June 8-August 14th. Members are invited to the opening reception sponsored by AAJANY and Asian American Legal Defense Fund (AALDEF) on Saturday, June 25.
