In this discussion, we will explore Chinatown as an enclave for immigrants; the specifics of Manhattan’s Chinatown as well as Chinatowns as a nation-wide network.
What is the future of Chinatown? Who are the shareholders? What are their goals? Who writes its future? What are Chinatown’s less visible social infrastructure and social networks? Is Chinatown representative of changes in other neighborhoods and immigrant communities?
Organized by Andrew Shiue (Beyond Chinatown) and Cheryl Wing-Zi Wong. This program is in conjunction with Cheryl Wing-Zi Wong's public artwork Constellation.
This exhibition is made possible by the Art in the Parks: UNIQLO Park Expressions Grant, which supports the creation of artworks by New York City-based emerging artists at 10 parks that are highly v isible, but underserved by cultural programming. The UNIQLO grant program will transform these locations into engaging art destinations with a series of rotating exhibitions and community events through 2019.
