Model Minority is an assemblage of the readings, articles, ephemera, and archives discovered and created from Gendai Gallery's year-long programming series issued under the same name. The book contests the self-pretence of a unified Canada build on a foundation of diversity and passive coexistence. Instead, Model Minority invites an unpacking of the construct of "Minority" outside of official state discourse to see if evidence of a more critical or even radical multiculturalism might emerge through conflict, contradiction, and solidarity, in the context of our settler-colonial legacies. 

With new texts by Liz Park, Jinhan Ko, Kerri Sakamoto, Tings Chak,Vincent Tao, Dan S. Wang, and Ryan Wong; artist projects byAlvis Choi, Jacqueline Hoang Nguyen, and Will Kwan; interviews with filmmakers Angad Bhallah, Christine Choy, and Min Sook Lee; reprinted texts by Mona Oikawa, Richard Day, and Gordon Pon; and a montage of historical "counter-models" about Yuri Kochiyama, The Chinese Laundry Alliance, Jesse Nishihata, and Grace Lee Boggs.
