Join us to celebrate the opening of Recognitions / 认 • 知 a solo exhibition by Christine Wong Yap, and the new CCA Campus Gallery in Blattner Hall.
Recognitions / 认 • 知 is an exhibition of new work that marks the culmination of a collaborative social practice project between 2022 Creative Citizenship Fellow and CCA alumna Christine Wong Yap and Edwin and Anita Lee Newcomer School—a public, one-year, language immersion elementary school in San Francisco’s Chinatown, serving Chinese-speaking recent immigrants.
Building upon Christine’s participatory research projects exploring belonging, the exhibition features three new projects that integrate artworks by elementary school students with maps, drawing, calligraphy, and sewing—characteristics of Christine’s hybrid practice as a social practitioner and visual artist.
CCA’s exhibition and presentation space, the Campus Gallery in Blattner Hall, is a new venue for showcasing the work of CCA students, faculty, alumni, and visiting artists in the heart of San Francisco’s design district. Located on the ground floor of Blattner Hall, the Gallery is accessible to the wider CCA community and surrounding neighborhood in Potrero Hill. Situated near world-renowned galleries and exhibition spaces, it also serves as a community hub, connecting contemporary art and ideas with local visitors and community members. The Campus Gallery features 1300 feet of exhibition space, making room for a wide-range of cutting-edge, exciting, interdisciplinary work, inviting visitors to see and experience something new each visit.
