5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Chinese Culture Center of San Francisco San Francisco CA

Requiem is a contemporary art exhibition that is inspired by the largely unknown story of the Chinese American diaspora, and the significant role of Hong Kong charity Tung Wah Group of Hospital’s efforts in repatriating dislocated Chinese bodies in the United States since the 19th century. During the Chinese Exclusion Act, Chinese in America had limited access to burial lands and saw homecoming as the significant ritual for the dead. Relying on local family associations as mini agents, and using Hong Kong as terminal, Tung Wah Group of Hospitals facilitated the repatriation of the bones from the U.S. back to their home in China. In response to this history, Chinese Culture Center invites third generation Chinese American artist Summer Mei-Ling Lee to reflect on the legacy, and at the same time, explore topics of homecoming under the global context of diaspora .

EXHIBITION DATE: OCT 26-DEC 23, 2017
ARTIST: SUMMER MEI-LING LEE
