Donut (W)hole

This body of serigraph prints is featured in a solo exhibition at Self Help Graphics & Art. Donut W(h)ole is an homage to the Cambodian immigrant and Cambodian American (Khmerican), the aftermath of warfare and genocide, stories of survival, determination, and commitment to the family unit. The exhibition is also a celebration of the Cambodian stories told through the lens of "Donut Kids," first and second generation Khmericans who grew up in their family's donut shop. These donut shops represent a cultural space where refugees and immigrants reshape their lives in the process of negotiating, assimilating, and becoming American.


This series was produced in collaboration with Pink Box Stories, founded by Dr. Jaspal Sandhu, which archives the lives and stories of Donut Kids throughout California.


This exhibition is supported in part by the Pasadena Art Alliance.
