Urban Hakka Tribes: Artists from Hsinchu, Taiwan & New York

When 28 Sep 2019 - 31 Oct 2019
Where New York Foundation for the Arts
20 Jay Street, Suite 740
Brooklyn, NY 11201
United States

We focus on cultural issues in the small community that has been created typically in the big city, where inevitable impacts are compounded. Identification as “Hakka” is more valuable, given the profound and ever-present opposition between remaining faithful to tradition and adapting to the circumstances of the enveloping milieu. The subject of Urban Hakka Tribes is a portion of the urgent topic of movement of people in the era of globalization. A dilemma faced on many continents, it reveals potential crises in the political, economic, and cultural arenas.

Participating artists: Marlene Tseng Yu ( 虞曾富美 ), Long-Cheng Ku ( 古榮政 ), Chih-Hui Chuan ( 莊志輝 ), Catherine Lan ( 藍巧茹 ), Chun-Liang Chuang ( 莊駿良 )

Curators : Su-Min Yang ( 楊素敏 ), Luchia Meihua Lee
