LINDA ZHANG AND STUDIO PARARAUM | Future Heritage(s)
LINDA ZHANG AND STUDIO PARARAUM | Future Heritage (s)
Project team: Amy Yan, Georgia Barrington, and Jimmy Tran
Despite its complex history, Chinatowns are one of the few accepted (and acceptable) overt displays of ethnocultural heritage. Given its contested and, at times, problematic history, this installation announces the future heritage(s) of Toronto’s East Chinatown as a collective act. We invite you to contribute to a shared future through this participatory installation: to reflect and take part in determining what is worth preserving.
