Chicago’s Chinatown Centennial Celebration at the
Chinese-American Museum of Chicago (www.chicagochinatown.org)
The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and the Chicago Chinatown Community have partnered to celebrate Chicago’s Chinatown Centennial in 2012. To mark this occasion, the Chinese-American Museum of Chicago will be hosting an SAIC exhibition, titled Mapping . Concentrated around the idea of constantly changing borders and boundaries, this exhibition will feature all facets of the Chinatown experience over the decades and the ways in which the neighborhood has developed and maintained its importance to Chinese immigrants, their descendants, and the Chicago community as a whole. Student applicants’ submissions should center around this concept of remapping a neighborhood, its inhabitants, and the ways in which communities change, with the focus being on Chicago’s Chinatown neighborhood in particular. Students may submit up to 10 images and a statement explaining their work. The exhibition will feature a broad range of artwork and ideas in order to showcase the various forms that the remapping and reshaping of borders may take. All media types are welcome.
