At The Gallery / Chinatown Looks by Yarrow Intergenerational Society for Justice + Soloman Chiniquay

January 17 @ 12:00 pm - March 16 @ 5:00 pm PST

January 17th 2023 – March 16th 2023, Massy Arts will host, Chinatown Looks: an intergenerational disposable camera project, a Chinatown-based photography project and workshop series showcasing the work of 21 Chinese seniors and youth members of Yarrow Intergenerational Society for Justice.

「相望唐人街:跨世代即棄式相機計畫」是一個唐人街的攝影計畫與工作坊系列,呈現二十一位世代同行會華人長者與青年的創作。

Drawing inspiration from Megaphone’s Hope in Shadows, Chinatown Looks responds to an expressed need for intergenerational knowledge creation and sharing around the past and future of Chinatown and the Downtown Eastside. With the support of Strathcona-based photographer and filmmaker, Soloman Chiniquay, the project is driven by the democratization of photography that disposable cameras provide and the act of empowering marginalized peoples to document their own lives.

「相望唐人街」的靈感源於擴音器雜誌的攝影計畫「陰影中的希望」,旨於回應對於唐人街的過去與未來,以及市中心東端,進行跨世代知識創造與共享之需求。在士達孔拿的攝影師、影片創作者索羅門.祈理魁的支持下,此一攝影計畫透過拋棄式相機所提供的攝影工具民主化,賦予被社會邊緣化的群眾自主記錄生活的力量。

The Massy Arts Gallery is located at 23 East Pender Street in Chinatown, Vancouver.
The gallery is open Monday to Sunday, 12pm to 5pm.
Entrance is free, and masks are mandatory.

The Artists / 藝術家群

Soloman Chiniquay is a documentary photographer and filmmaker living between xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, səl̓ilwətaɁɬ territory and his homelands of Treaty 7 territory. His lens-based work explores the ways he is welcomed to witness expressions of Indigeneity, creating imagery that attempts to show, in sometimes raw ways, the land and the people on it, the ways people use and connect to the land, and the artifacts they leave on it.

索羅門.祈理魁是一位紀實攝影師與影片創作者,在瑪斯昆、史戈米殊、斯裡沃特原住民的領土上,以及他的家鄉第七條約區之間,來往居住。他的影視鏡頭創作,探索他如何得到歡迎,而得以見證原民性的表達;透過圖像,以時而質樸的方式,呈現這片土地以及居住於其上的人們;了解人們使用土地、與土地建立連結的方式,以及他們所留下來的工藝品。


Yarrow Intergenerational Society for Justice 世代同行會 supports youth and low-income immigrant seniors in Chinatown and the Downtown Eastside. We build power in our community through intergenerational relationship building, and by helping seniors overcome language and cultural barriers to services that meet their basic needs. Our vision is of a Chinatown that is intergenerational and thriving, with accessible and culturally relevant services and an environment that cherishes our seniors and youth.

世代同行會在唐人街和市中心東端為青年與低收入移民長者提供支持。我們透過跨世代連結的促進,協助長者和青年建立力量,並且幫助長者打破語言與文化藩籬,獲得社會服務以滿足其基本需求。我們的願景是建立一個多代同堂、欣欣向榮的唐人街;此唐人街有文化適切、無障礙的服務,並且有珍視我們的長者和青年之環境。
