We're Throwing a Party!!!


AAWW's unveiling three new web-magazines!

Join us for an exclusive party on June 28, 2012 from 7pm-11pm at Projective Space in Chinatown/L.E.S.

You'll get to screenprint with artist and activist Julio Salgado, who was recently the first undocumented immigrant to be featured on the cover of TIME magazine, along with fellow undocuqueer artist Felipe Baez

You'll enjoy the stylings of Ashok Kondabolu, the hypeman for hip hop trio Das Racist, who just might stick around for a final DJ set. Christina Xu of The Awesome Foundation & Rekha Malhotra aka DJ Rekha will tell you about their forays into the future of Asian American awesomeness. Ishle Park, aka the "Queen of Queens", that borough's first Poet Laureate, will throw down some verse. For your added pleasure, we'll have AAWW signature Remy Martin cognac cocktails, Tiger Beer, tasty treats, DJ & Gigantic editor-at-large James Yeh, Tao Lin, an iPad photobooth, & tote bags sporting crowd-sourced immigrant photos from the winners of our Twitter contest judged by artist Tania Bruguera, the Guggenheim Fellow behind Immigrant Movement International.

For your tastebuds we'll have authentic Taiwanese street food from star chef Eddie Huang of BaoHaus, healthy pastries from Souen in the East Village, and cutting-edge vegetarian cuisine from Wild Ginger!
