(de)Constructing Chinatown

July 26, 2012 – October 28, 2012

Organized by Steven Y.Wong, Curator at the Chinese American Museum, (de)Constructing Chinatown examines Los Angeles Chinatown that unpacks a geographical space in a state constant change, from the original home of Historic Chinatown, where Union Station now sits, to the current home of “New Chinatown,” along the Broadway Avenue corridor. The exhibition provides an alternative view in contrast to preconceived notions about Los Angeles Chinatown, revealing a neighborhood that is an essential part of the City’s culturally diverse and ever-changing landscape.

Participating artists include: Heimir Björgúlfsson, Audrey Chan, Phung Huynh, Betty Lee, James Rojas, Michael Sakamoto, Shizu Saldamando, and Matthew Winkler.
