Waves of Identity: 35 Years of Archiving

This exhibition will present over 200 objects and stories, organized in eight sections through a series of provocative questions such as Where Does Chinatown End? How Do You Become American? and What Does It Mean To Be Chinese? This inquiry-based approach will prompt visitors to actively search for answers within archive materials and objects. The featured artifacts, documents, videos and oral histories embody and evoke the lives, complexities, and aspirations of Chinese American communities in New York Chinatown and beyond.

The exhibition will include highlights from MOCA’s special collections and previous exhibitions including intricate paper sculptures from the Fly to Freedom Collection: The Art of the Golden Venture Refugees, Recovering Chinatown: The 9/11 Collection, Marcella Chin Dear Collection, Hazel Ying Lee Collection, the Chinese Musical and Theatrical Association Collection, and more. 

Curated by Herb Tam, Curator and Director of Exhibitions and 
Yue Ma, Associate Director of Collections. Cynthia Lee served as a project advisor. It is presented in conjunction with the New-York Historical Society’s exhibition, Chinese American: Exclusion/Inclusion.

The Warriors is the 1979 cult action film that follows New York City gangs in an overnight chase from a park in the Bronx all the way down to Coney Island. For its 25th anniversary, Track Or Die and Cycle Hawk organized a ride that more or less replicated the film’s route, only on bikes, and with checkpoints and challenges along the way. The city we live in today is not quite the dystopian crime world depicted in the movie — for example, in real New York, turns out you can’t throw a baseball bat at a cop’s knees and then just walk away like it never happened — but one thing the movie gets right is that this city has secrets you can discover only if you get out of your home turf. Here’s some of what I discovered on the ride… 13 things you learn about NYC on an all-night Warriors bike ride

OUTLAW ARTS Presents: The 21st Precinct x Gashouse District

The 21st precinct was built in 1863 and acted as a functioning precinct until 1914. We will have a pop up gallery space and 4 floors of murals, wheatpastes, graffiti and installations by renowned artists from NYC and worldwide. In the tradition of the Outlaw Parties of the late 80′s and early 90′s we will re-invigorate an unused space with a wide range of creative minds working in multiple mediums. Scheduled opening reception is 8/16/14 and will be open for viewing all weekend and a closing event the following weekend. The building is scheduled for demolition the last week of August. This will be the first of an ongoing series with Suzuki Capital at their various properties throughout the boroughs.
