About the show:
Islands is a video installation by Yoko Nogami and Britzel Vasquez which explores the issues on identity, cultural displacement, gender stereo type. The title Islands cleverly ties the origins of both artists, Japan and Puerto Rico, effectively proposing the audience with a thought, deriving from issues both artists experienced through their residency in the mainland United States, from a perspective of an outsider.
