Transpacific Ties: Bridging Hong Kong and Los Angeles Through Art
Featuring over 40 artists with disabilities, Transpacific Ties: Bridging Hong Kong and Los Angeles through Art emphasized the talents of two groups of artists separated by the Pacific Ocean but united in their shared passion for art. The exhibition encouraged an ongoing dialogue about the Chinese diaspora; shared the stories, histories, and challenges that unite the community; and showcased the many ways in which the community cares for and empowers those with disabilities.
In partnership with the Hong Kong based Tung Wah Group of Hospitals (TWGHs) and the Southern California based Chinese Parents Association for the Disabled (CPAD), Transpacific Ties was the Chinese American Museum’s first transnational exhibition. The exhibition ran from Aug. 9 and to Dec. 14.
