In conjunction with multiple South Bay arts organizations, SJMQT will be apart of the New Terrains: Mobility and Migration Project. Through cross-disciplinary presentations and exhibitions, this innovative project will enlighten the citizens of San Jose on the ways in which bodies move through social and political spaces. SJMQT is excited to be apart of this Silicon Valley collaboration which features progressive matters such as urban planning, public protest and immigration. Wu Yu Jung’s exhibition at the SJMQT adds to depth of this event as it provides first-hand documentation on a non-native’s perception of her daily experience in San Jose, California.
