Event description

Join us to celebrate the opening of Recognitions / 认 • 知 a solo exhibition by Christine Wong Yap, and the new CCA Campus Gallery in Blattner Hall.

Recognitions / 认 • 知 is an exhibition of new work that marks the culmination of a collaborative social practice project between 2022 Creative Citizenship Fellow and CCA alumna Christine Wong Yap and Edwin and Anita Lee Newcomer School—a public, one-year, language immersion elementary school in San Francisco’s Chinatown, serving Chinese-speaking recent immigrants. 

Building upon Christine’s participatory research projects exploring belonging, the exhibition features three new projects that integrate artworks by elementary school students with maps, drawing, calligraphy, and sewing—characteristics of Christine’s hybrid practice as a social practitioner and visual artist. 

This exhibition is generously supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, San Francisco Grants for the Arts, and the Deborah and Kenneth Novack Creative Citizens Program Series.
