A project of the Asian American Artists Centre, artasiamerica curates contemporary art from Asian American artists and makers, serving as "a high-quality research tool accessible globally to scholars, historians, curators, artists, as well as an educational resource for college and high school students, teachers, and community members." While the physical archive is located in New York City, readers from around the world can enjoy many pieces of the collection online. Launched in 2009, the digital archive focuses on "Asian American visual culture," prioritizing "issues that embody the question of diversity in America during the past 60 years." On the main page, readers will find a featured artist and piece highlighted, just one of the nearly three thousand (as of this write-up) included in the digital archive. Readers can browse all of the artwork via the Artists tab, which provides an alphabetical catalog of creators included in the collection. Each artist's profile contains a brief biography, links to their professional website, and a gallery of their work. There is also an Advanced Search feature, where users can filter results by year, artist, and material, among other selections. Under this tab, visitors can also browse by index of materials, style/period, subject, and technique.
