A Chinese Culture Foundation of San Francisco Program 舊金山中華文化基金会項目
"Womxn, Omen, Wǒmén in Chinatown: Reimagining Symbols of Power and Access" is a project that engages families and visitors with emerging female artists to explore the ways that cultural signifiers shape relationships to power and access. Working with the lead artist Laura Boles Faw who initiates the concept, three participating artists Bijun Liang, Shisi Huang and Vida Kuang will explore issues of gender and struggles for equity in the neighborhood and beyond while building connections with community members.
Their individual projects will activate the community through a variety of approaches including an interactive installation inspired by the Chinese wishing well, a movable chatting room sparking in-depth conversation, and multi-site audio portraits based on storytelling workshop. The works by the three participating artists will be presented at 41 Ross Alley, San Francisco.
