Originally a derogatory label derived from the Hawaiian word for "half," the word "Hapa" has been embraced as a term of pride by many whose mixed-race heritage includes Asian or Pacific Rim ancestry. kip fulbeck: part asian, 100% hapa is an exhibition of portraits by artist Kip Fulbeck, who traveled the country photographing Hapa of all ages and walks of life. Opening to the public June 10 and running through the end of 2011, kip fulbeck: part asian, 100% hapa is a nationally touring and acclaimed exhibit addressing heritage and identity.

Fulbeck’s work seeks to address in words and images the one question that Hapa are frequently asked: "What are you?" By pairing portraits of Hapa—unadorned by make-up, jewelry, and clothing—along with their handwritten statements on who they are, Fulbeck has produced powerful yet intimate expressions of beauty and identity. The exhibit is an artist’s attempt to explore Hapa—who now number in the millions—and it offers a complex perspective on the changing reality of contemporary America.

Kip Fulbeck is an award-winning photographer, filmmaker, writer, and spoken-word artist whose work has been exhibited worldwide. He is a professor and chair of Art at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

The traveling version of kip fulbeck: part asian, 100% hapa is organized by the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles, California, and is supported, in part, by the James Irvine Foundation. Programming was made possible in part by a grant from Oregon Humanities, a statewide nonprofit organization and an independent affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, which funds Oregon Humanities grant program. Additional support has been provided by the University of Oregon in Portland Osher Lifelong Learning Institute .
