Gallery Hours: Thur - Sun 11am - 4pm
Our Intergenerational Stories: Home is personally curated by the parent and youth participants as a culmination to CAA's Oral History and Photography Workshop Series.
口述摄影班 (Intergenerational Oral Storytelling and Photography Workshop Series) is a 6-month project sprung out of a goal to redefine and reshape the narrative of Chinese immigrants through storytelling, rooted in the reality of working-class immigrant struggle. We understand that storytelling is a powerful tool used to tell history, create movements, and mobilize masses for social change. Centered in San Francisco’s Chinatown, Chinese for Affirmative Action’s (CAA) immigrant members tell their own stories and decide how their stories will be used to engage larger Chinatown community in a deeper dialogue around family and immigration through the medium of audio storytelling and photography. Immigrant families take part a seven-part workshop series facilitated by artists, Mlin and Vida K. Community members will have the opportunity to practice storytelling from a place of power, to assert their agency, shape their own narrative, and advocate for others through the power of voice. Throughout the art-making process, families are able to deepen their connections to one another through a shared project where they learn about themselves and each other.
This exhibition is curated by the parent leaders Ivy, Ah Yee, Ah Yu, Ai, Ah Lian, Camille, Jerry and his daughter Muiyi, in collaboration with partner artists Vida Kuang and MLin.
