The new old trend: stereotype as shorthand for everything we don’t know or understand about “the other.” This is the reissued verbal currency in increased use today. And isn’t it reassuring when stereotypes prove true? It feels so good to be right. Further, making assumptions and drawing conclusions without factual information is such a time-saver. Why bother investigating when your opinion of someone is already cemented in your mind? And what if some of the stereotypes are actually true? Does that prevent a person from having an authentic story? The work of Su Yang, Max Sansing, and Corinna Button provide us with a firm response: three artists; three distinct voices; three bodies of work that will force us to abandon the stereotypes.
