We have been busy retrofitting STAMP inside and out to reopen our doors and welcome back the UMD community.

Stamp Gallery Online Exhibition: Not Your Model Minority

posted on August 05, 2020


Not Your Model Minority:
Pandemic, Proximity, and Power

Online Exhibition runs August 5 - September 5, 2020


Selina Lee, Fox News in Chinese, Video Still.


Not Your Model Minority: Pandemic, Proximity, and Power is a response to the wave of anti-Asian rhetoric and violence surrounding the “Chinese virus” and the critical self-evaluation of Asian American positionality in the movement for Black Lives and earlier histories of Black and Asian solidarities.

In the mid-1900s, Asian Americans, as a group, were labelled as the racial “Model Minority” for their supposed achievement of a higher degree of socioeconomic success in comparison to other racial minority groups, most notably Black Americans. Yet, how can we challenge the idea of race--commonly understood as a socially-constructed notion of difference--as an instrument of empire? Where do Asian Americans fall in relation to other minority groups as a result of larger interrelated struggles of land, labor, and empire?

The five artists in this show engage and subvert assumptions affixed on the racialized and pathologized Asian body-- as perpetual foreigners, consumers in the system of whiteness, newly hypervisible yet historically invisible, submissive, quiet, apolitical, and displaced by United States imperialism and militarization--residing in the American landscape.

MICA Land Acknowledgment

posted on March 06, 2020

Every community owes its existence and strength to the generations before them, around the world, who contributed their hopes, dreams, and energy into making the history that led to this moment. Some were brought here against their will, some were drawn to migrate from their homes in hope of a better life, and some have lived on this land for more generations than can be counted. Truth and acknowledgment are critical in building mutual respect and connections across all barriers of heritage and difference. 

At the office of Multicultural Involvement & Community Advocacy (MICA), we believe it is important to create dialogue to honor those that have been historically and systemically disenfranchised. So, we acknowledge the truth that is often buried: We are on the ancestral lands of the Piscataway People, who were among the first in the Western Hemisphere. We are on indigenous land that was stolen from the Piscataway People by European colonists. We pay respects to Piscataway elders and ancestors. Please take a moment to consider the many legacies of violence, displacement, migration, and settlement that bring us together here today.
