The Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience in Seattle is home to “Worlds Beyond Here: The Expanding Universe of APA Science Fiction”, on view October 12, 2018 – September 15, 2019. Hugo Award winning managing editor of Uncanny, Michi Trota, who wrote the text for the exhibit, said, “This exhibit means a great deal to me because much of my own journey in learning to understand what my identity as an Asian American, as a Filipina, means to me has been deeply interwoven with my love for science fiction.” Artists included Solomon Enos, Simon Kono, James Ng, Christian Pearce, June Sekiguchi, Tamiko Thiel, Frank Wu, and others, including Locus design editor Francesca Myman. Firelady Films designed an interactive VR experience for the show called Dark Shapes, based on E. Lily Yu’s story “The Wretched and the Beautiful”, and Real Artists by Cameo Wood, based on the story by Ken Liu, was showing. The exhibit community partner was Clarion West; the Community Advisory Committee included Betsy Aoki, Yang-Yang Wang, E. Lily Yu, and many others.
