Borne of the necessities of survival and the restrictions of racism, ethnic enclaves arose to form vibrant communities where newcomers could bring a taste of home.  Chinatowns, Nihonmachis, Little Manilas, and others formed in the early 20th centuries, migrating to neighborhoods where early immigrants had established themselves and thriving in communities where neglect meant housing was affordable. With the rise of gentrification across the United States, this multimedia photography-based exhibit will spark conversation about what goes into making healthy and sustainable communities, what they contribute to the larger society, and strategies and policies that can protect and support them.

Curated by photographer Carina A. del Rosario, this multi-media photography-based exhibit features artists Dean Wong, Mel Ponder, Andrew Hida, and the Chinatown Art Brigade collective.

Exhibition Date: May 10, 2019 - Apr 19, 2021.
