The DePaul Art Museum is looking at mixed race Asian American histories and identities in the new show "War Baby/Love Child," which opens April 25.

"Through traditional media as well as video, installation and other approaches, artists explore a range of topics, including U.S. wars in Asia, multiculturalism and identity politics, racialization, gender and sexual identity, citizenship and nationality, and transracial adoption," said Laura Kina, who curated the exhibit.

Kina is an associate professor of art, media and design at DePaul as well as a founding member of the university's Global Asian Studies program.

Kina said in a statement that the exhibit is designed to give "visibility to the increasingly mixed generation coming of age."
