As a part of the Emerging Curators Program through the Asian American Women Artists’ Association (AAWAA), Chinatown raised Carmen Chen 陳嘉文 and Vida Kuang 鄺楚瑩 are curating an art event throughout the neighborhood called Hella Tender that highlights and supports the community’s businesses in the face of the pandemic and anti-Asian violence.
This art is a true testament of how the folks of Chinatown have shown up for each other beyond victimization, and cultivates the strength that already exists within the community. Artists will be hosting art workshops in small businesses/parks in Chinatown and there will also be pop up exhibitions.
Hella Tender exhibitions and May 14 activities include:
- Joshua Chuck’s Chinatown Rising, a film that explores the history and politicization of Chinatown. The film was recently featured in SF Chronicle and LA Times.
- Eryn Kimura’s Jade Chocolate Exhibition, a collage that is composed of garments from print media and found ephemera that reimagines and archives ancestral pasts and futures.
Joyce Xi’s community portrait activity that is meant to signify working towards a more just and free world. This activity is through the Chinese Culture Center Bridge.
