Legion presents HOW NOW CHINATOWN: Seven Photographers, featuring works by California-based photographers. This transgenerational show includes images of San Francisco Chinatown from the 1940s through the present. HOW NOW CHINATOWN brings together a range of perspectives from native San Franciscans born and raised in the city to those who have forged personal connections with Chinatown by exploring its streets and alleys to observe and absorb its life while getting to know its residents and local business owners. Chinatown is a place to call home, a refuge, a community, and a familiar ground to return to again and again.
Legion is a contemporary lifestyle boutique representing independent designers, some local and exclusive to the area, including First Rite, Ali Golden, Kowtow, Ilana Kohn, Seek Collective, and Ben Medansky. Founded by Bay Area native and fashion writer Sydney Pfaff, Legion also stocks a selection of home design, paper goods, and books. HOW NOW CHINATOWN is part of a series curated for Legion by Alice Wu, supported by an Alternative Exposure Grant. Legion’s thematic exhibitions explore the intersection of art, commerce and design and Chinatown, where Legion is situated.
HOW NOW CHINATOWN is on view February 12 through March 25, 2016 at Legion, 678 Commercial Street, San Francisco 94111. Legion is open Monday-Friday, 11AM-6PM, Saturday 1PM-5PM and by appointment. For further information and show images, please visit www.legionsf.com or contact Legion at firstname.lastname@example.org or 415-733-7900.
