In his seven-channel video installation Making Chinatown (2012) artist Ming Wong reconstructs a hollywood classic to complicate the relationship between identity, language and performance. Originally commissioned by REDCAT in LA and filmed in its gallery, the video installation is a remake of Roman Polanski's 1974 neo-noir film "Chinatown," with the artist cast in roles originally played by Jack Nicholson, Faye Dunaway, John Huston and Belinda Palmer.
Conversation starting at 7pm with Aram Moshayedi, Associate Curator of the Gallery at REDCAT.
A new format at KADIST: the 24 hour exhibition brings together the exhibition and event, combining the live screenings, performances and conversations that we've become known for with several artworks installed in all three of our spaces. After the 4 hour long Wednesday event, we'll keep the work on view for the following two weekends, with gallery hours from 12 to 5 on Saturday and Sunday, for a total of 24 hours.
