FREE TRADE Opening Reception

SEE EVENT DETAILS
"FREE TRADE" features artists and designers who examine the geopolitical history of the movement of goods across the Pacific Ocean, and propose a more socially just, ecological global supply chain. The exhibition is inspired by the Bay Area’s significant role in the development of modern transoceanic trade and the Chinese Culture Center’s unique site between San Francisco’s Financial District and Chinatown. "FREE TRADE" riffs on the current political climate and talk of trade (dis)agreements, providing an opportunity for conversations about art and commerce, the complexities of consumption, artistic production, cultural exchange, and the high human cost of capitalism. With a nod to the “design shop,” selected artworks are available for purchase and immediate takeaway – souvenirs of a more thoughtful kind.

Guest Curator: Alice Wu
Featured Artists: Miriam Dym, Joyce Hsu, Jimin Lee, Cathy Lu, Louise Leong, Gabby Miller, Johanna Poethig, Chelsea Wong, Leland Wong, Christine Wong Yap
