Re-presenting Boston Chinatown as a Place of People–Then and Now
A multi-media exhibit that explores the streets and public spaces of one of Boston’s most dynamic and historic neighborhoods.
July 29 - September 27
Wen-ti Tsen is a painter and public artist. He was born in China and grew up in Europe before coming to the U.S. to study painting at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Since the mid-1970s, after living and traveling for several years in different countries, he has been engaged in making art that explores cultural connections: with personal paintings and installations, large-scale public art sculptures and working with communities to express social issues in various art forms.
Celebrate the opening of Maddu Huacuja’s new exhibition, Open the Way. Meet the artist in person and experience her most recent work about the myths and migration of Latinx peoples to the U.S.
Engage with Poets Leonardo Nin, Willy Ramirez and Jimmy Valdez as they present a fusion of perspectives, examining current issues facing Latinx men of color in spoken word performance and group discussion.
Hosted by 2019-2020 BHCC Distinguished Artist Scholar in Residence Rhina Espaillat.
