BOSTON AIR | Boston Artist-In-Residence Program

Resilient Current is a printmaking installation that embraces the past and present immigrant communities that have transformed Chinatown. I like to think of kindness and generosity as a characteristic of emphasis for this project and as a way to speak against hatred, misogyny, and xenophobia. Through this art project, we want to embrace the diverse groups that have been part of the Chinatown community and provide hope, inclusion, and a sense of belonging for all immigrants, and most importantly, emphasize that we are all free, capable, and equal.
