AAWAA recognizes an alarming lack of Asian cultural visibility in
Brooklyn. The Home Room Project aims to create an aesthetic, Asian
cultural presence that goes beyond Lo Mein, Sushi and Kung Fu, intending
for exploration in Asian arts to be educational, interactive and accessible
for the local communities.
Planned Activities: Home Room 1 6/16/06 – 4/17/07
The first Home Room of the series, a living environment
that is Chinese, will include a visual exhibition, a small library
and a performing space., at AAWAA Gallery II, 136 15th Street, Brooklyn,
NY 11215. Home Room 1 presents a piece of Chinese cultural history
by mobilizing New York-based and specially Brooklyn-based artists,
to create an installation - using a contemporary interpretation of
traditional wood carving for door and window constructions, cut-paper
design and period decorative elements - fabricated and installed by
a team of professional artists with background in building constructions,
design and woodwork.
To supplement the educational aspect of the exhibition, other art
forms will be presented. (Music,dance, poetry recitals, videos, movies).
A TV/video production of Home Room 1 will be made for documentation
Theme of Home Room 1:
To depict the visual, literature and drama of China between 1911-1950,
a critical renaissance of arts in Chinese history. Visual display
will focus on art work of women artists ( which is nearly non-existent
and few records to be found) and women writers of the time.
Other Aspect of Home Room 1
Home Room 1 will be juxtaposed with two visual exhibitions by contemporary
artists at AAWAA Gallery I. 6/16/06 – 12/22/06 and 1/15/07 –
