Majime Sugiru serves as communications director for the Asians Art Museum, a guerrilla art collective that creates public and online ‘cultural interventions’ as a means of challenging dominant (mis)representations of Asian visual culture in the Bay Area. Their latest project integrates Japanese Studies scholarship with art in a parody of last summer’s blockbuster “Lords of the Samurai” exhibition at the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco.
