The “Resilience/Resistance: Chinatown Art Brigade” exhibit puts a more diverse human face on gentrification by celebrating resilience and resistance, and by giving local residents a way to tell their own stories of displacement. As artists and as activists, we recognize the urgency to act now to protect this community from an uncertain future.
We believe that collaborations with community residents, artists and activists in spaces like the Pearl River Mart will bring us a step closer to understanding the ways in which artists and community can work together in movements for social change.
The exhibit features members and supporters of Chinatown Art Brigade:
Enbion Micah Aan
Emily Chow Bluck
Zhi Qin Zheng
We will also be hosting artist talks on Sat. Jan. 14th & 15th from 1 to 4pm. Details HERE.
We’d like to thank the Chen family for offering us the opportunity to showcase the work of ten members and supporters of the Chinatown Brigade in the new Pearl River Mart gallery, which has developed into a dynamic cultural space for art, dialogue and exchange.
