華埠居民面貌今昔展 9/10-18

HOME TOWN
Re-Presenting Boston's Chinatown as Place of People – Then and Now
September 10-18, 2016

Artist: Wen-ti Tsen
Assistant Artist: Jasmine Lee

“Home Town” is an art project that supports the movement in Boston’s Chinatown of the last several years to counteract the extensive urban developments and gentrification that is threatening the integrity of the community. The project uses two forms of visual art to represent the people of the past and present Chinatown:

(1) Presenting History: 10-12 life-size, cut-out figures, reproduced from historic photographs selected from the archives of Chinese Historical Society of New England (CHSNE), the project’s partner, are deployed for one week along public spaces in Chinatown.
(2) Representing Now: a photo-station, with a historical-based backdrop, is set up at varying times and locations during the display week; residents, working persons, and passers-by are encouraged to pose formally and have their portraits taken, aiming to create a new photo album of the community with some 300-400 portraits.
 
Please invite family, friends and community to join us post#chinatownismyhome with your portraits on the week of the Home Town public art project from September 10 - 18th!
