Leavings/Belonging, Yu-Wen Wu - CANCELED
Monday, March 4, 2019
Join Pao Arts Center Artist-in-Residence Yu-Wen Wu in a project that gathers people together to create art, while also sharing stories of family and personal immigration experience. Inspired by the tradition of storytelling while making, the bundle-making project engages women from various immigrant and refugee communities in the making of symbolic “bundles.” Through the act of making together, participants can share stories. These anomalously shaped cloth-wrapped bundles may represent what is left behind, and what may be carried in migration— survival, hope, dreams. Throughout these sessions, these bundles will be exhibited collectively in public spaces to generate conversation, dialogue and bridges across experiences, generations and ethnicity. The bundles will contribute to the project Leavings/Belongings. Materials are provided. Feel free to contribute to the project by bringing fabric meaningful to your personal or your family’s journey. Refreshments will be served!
