ExplorASIAN 2012 – the 16th annual month-long festival to celebrate Asian Heritage Month in Metro Vancouver – features the “Generation One Art Exhibition” as one of its signature programs. Generation One, a platform for local artists to showcase their artworks in the community, appears at multiple sites throughout Metro Vancouver.
A special purpose of this year’s exhibition is to highlight young artists who are home-grown first-generation Asian-Canadians, or new immigrants.

Other Generation One venues include: the River Market and Amicus Lawyers, both in New Westminster.
