This chapter turns to the site of the art museum and examines the work of the Filipino American artist Stephanie Syjuco, which parodies the accumulation and exhibition of Asian artifacts in the Western civilizational museum. Syjuco critically uses strategies of mimesis and plagiarism in order to expose the museum’s history of raiding non-Western cultures and its racialized objectification of non-Western peoples.

Keywords:   minority women artists, Filipino American arts, imperialism, museum exhibits, Stephanie Syjuco
