‘Amanda Phingbodhipakkiya: We are More’ Arrives in Times Square

Amanda Phingbodhipakkiya’s We Are More public art campaign celebrates the expansive diversity and individuality of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in New York City and around the country. It responds to and rebukes the harassment and violence that has become increasingly severe amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. The titular work in the campaign is a direct address to the bigoted and confining stereotypes of Asians and Asian-Americans in popular culture; other works ask questions both poignant — “When will we stop feeling afraid?” — and pointed — “When will you love us like you love our food?” Still more feature vibrant portraits representative of defiant and proud Asian American and Pacific Islander New Yorkers. Phingbodhipakkiya juxtaposes rich tones and energetic shapes with the language of sorrow and anger to show that despite what AAPI people have faced in New York and elsewhere, they remain undeterred and steadfast members of the cities they call home.

Kehinde Wiley’s first monumental public sculpture, Rumors of War, will be installed this fall on the Broadway Plaza between 46th and 47th Streets before it is permanently installed on historic Arthur Ashe Boulevard in Richmond at the entrance to the VMFA, a recent acquisition to the museum’s world-class collection in 2020.

The installation is a larger-than-life sculpture cast in bronze, of a massive horse mounted proudly on a large stone pedestal, with a young, African-American rider dressed in urban streetwear. It is Wiley’s direct response to the critical national debate around Confederate monuments, and continues the artist’s career-long investigation of representation, race, gender, and power through portraiture.
