(de)Constructing Chinatown

(de)Constructing Chinatown was an artist showcase of Los Angeles Chinatown, revealing the geographical space in a state constant change, from the original home of Historic Chinatown, where Union Station now sits, to the current home of “New Chinatown,” along the Broadway Avenue corridor. The exhibition illustrated an alternative view in contrast to preconceived notions about Los Angeles Chinatown. This new perspective provides a real understanding and appreciation of Los Angeles Chinatown as an essential part of the City’s culturally diverse and ever-changing landscape.

Selection from the Michael Sakamoto series, “El Espiritu del Barrio Chino”
