"A video installation of mine was featured in the United Nations Habitat Pavilion of the Shanghai Expo," Fung said.

Both artists have had their work displayed in China.

"I exhibited in the Third Guangzhou Triennial in 2008. My work was acquired by the Contemporary Museum. I have not visited yet but will love so," Campos-Pons said.

According to Chang, it was enlightening to work with transnational artists. "Fundamentally I was in awe of the work that exists in the region," she said.

Even though this exhibit focuses on the art from the Chinese diaspora in the Caribbean, Fung marveled at how interconnected the world really is.

"My uncle participated in a Hollywood film as an extra playing a Japanese soldier in World War II," Fung said. "I was intrigued by this Chinese man playing a Japanese soldier in a movie shot in the Caribbean island of Tobago standing in for an unnamed Pacific island."
