War Baby / Love Child examines hybrid Asian American identity through a collection of essays, artworks, and interviews at the intersection of critical mixed race studies and contemporary art. The book pairs artwork and interviews with nineteen emerging, mid-career, and established mixed race/mixed heritage Asian American artists, including Li-lan and Kip Fulbeck, with scholarly essays exploring such topics as Vietnamese Amerasians, Korean transracial adoptions, and multiethnic Hawai'i. As an increasingly ethnically ambiguous Asian American generation is coming of age in an era of "optional identity," this collection brings together first-person perspectives and a wider scholarly context to shed light on changing Asian American cultures.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Kina and Dariotis's volume offers an evolving and rich archive of marginalized but must-be-seen art production which scholars in Asian American Studies, Ethnic Studies, and Art History can synthesize in multiple exciting ways.

-- Susette Min * Amerasia Journal *

It is a very fine example of the Fine Art of Race Talk.

-- Brett Russell Coleman * Magic Mulatto *

The project makes visible underrepresented histories with Asian-American studies, mixed-race studies and contemporary art. The exhibition and accompanying book . . . map out and contextualize the lives and works of these artists.

-- Jessica Davis * City Living Seattle *

A fascinating book on mixed-race identity and visual art.

-- Shawn Wong * International Examiner *
