“In her exquisitely perceptive approach to art and curation, Susette Min turns the category of Asian American art on its head. The artists surveyed in Unnamable wrestle with the ‘predicament’ of being categorized as an Asian American artist. Through textured, impeccably-researched, and richly-rendered examinations of their works, Min curates these avant garde practitioners into delightful group shows focused on the themes of labor, practices of gleaning, and the disappearing body of the Asian/American artist. A provocative challenge to liberal multiculturalism’s fetish for and diminishment of ethnic and/or minority artists, Unnamable reformulates the category of Asian American art, and by doing so, revitalizes its enclosing structure.”
—Rachel C. Lee, author of The Exquisite Corpse of Asian America
- "Susette Min unites critical, curatorial, and historical praxis in this far-ranging account of--and call for--the necessarily plural, unending encounter with artworks and artists named 'Asian American.'"
—Sarita Echavez See, author of The Filipino Primitive
