Join GAPIMNY for a special curator-led tour of “SUB URBANISMS: Casino Urbanizations, Chinatowns, and the Contested American Landscape”, an acclaimed exhibition at the Museum of Chinese in America.
An award-winning anthropological case study by designer Stephen Fan, SUB URBANISMS explores the controversial conversion of suburban single-family homes into multi-family communities by immigrant Chinese casino workers in Connecticut. Addressing the norms, cultural values, and public policies that determine how most Americans live, the exhibition juxtaposes immigrant cultural beliefs and pragmatism with suburban American social, aesthetic, and financial codes. The Tour will be followed by dim sum in Chinatown.
This event is FREE for a select number of participants. Please RSVP at [email protected]. Participants will meet in the lobby before the tour begins promptly at 12pm.
