The Chinese American Museum and the California African American Museum teamed up for the unique two-part exhibition.

"Thinking about how the Asian and African communities came together," Chang said, "it’s important to have those stories now especially in the US where the country is so politically divided now.”

Chang and co-curator Steven Y. Wong curated the exhibition that ran from last September until March 11.

The exhibit includes works by 39 artists which have been split between the two museums. Pieces range from traditional paintings to video collages and installations.

"Circles and Circuits I: History and Art of the Chinese Caribbean Diaspora" examined the works of the Chinese-Caribbean diaspora from the early 20th century.

The second part – "Circles and Circuits II: Contemporary Chinese Caribbean", focused on the work of contemporary artists examining popular culture and the post-colonial era of the Caribbean.
