Red Envelope Project

Cinthia Chen & Tina-Hanaé Miller

This Lunar New Year, give the gift of protection and prosperity and ward off Sui. Artists Cinthia Chen and Tina Hanaé Miller take the origin myth behind the red envelope and reimagine it for this moment. At a time when visiting in person, as per custom, is unsafe, they’ve created an interactive red envelope exchange for our A4 community that goes both ways: old to young, and young to old.

If you received a red envelope in the mail, use your QR code or access the experience on this page to immerse yourself in a audio-visual telling of the mythology of Sui. Or, just enter the experience and create your own red envelope at home with printable red envelopes created by the artists themselves.


Make Tikoy

Angelique De Castro

Learn about the traditions and history of tikoy (a delicacy of steamed glutinous rice cake) in Chinese Filipino Lunar New Year celebrations and try your hand in baking one with this visual, interactive recipe. After you make tikoy, add it to the virtual gallery and share your Lunar New Year traditions to see what other people have made and how they celebrate! This project was created by Angelique De Castro and inspired by her own family memories.


ROAD TO CHANG’E, February 17, 6-7PM

Join A4 and artist and space journalist Alex Lin on Twitch as she constructs a lunar base and attempts to land on the moon while playing Kerbal Space Program. Building a new world inspired by the Year of the Ox, Alex celebrates the importance of the moon and the China National Space Administration as they recently completed a successful lunar sample-return mission called Chang’e 5. The livestream chat will be open to all stream-viewers so we invite you to join Alex on her journey to create the lunar base, while sharing your new year goals and explorations!

Dinner Discourse, February 18, 6-7PM

Join artist Monyee Chau and designer Dong-Ping Wong for a conversation around creativity, community, and Asian American identity.

In the recent past, we’ve gathered together to celebrate the lunar new year with a Lo Hei dinner, but since we can’t be together physically this year, we will meet virtually and connect through our love of community, food, and all things Asian American!

For this 3-course conversation, Monyee and Dong-Ping will whet our appetites with an introduction to their practice, get into the meat of things with a discussion of how they came to terms with their Asian Americanness, and then finish with some of their recent confections including a garden in the Cayman Islands and a vitreography exploring the exotification of eastern imagery.

Join us for what is sure to be a lively conversation and learn what it means to be a 1.5 generation Asian American, how to work in solidarity with other communities, and how the discovery of rap music and an article on Black hair and beauty standards brought clarity to these artists.

But what has made it a mainstsay are its regular predictions of which periods are auspicious or ominous for a wide range of daily pursuits. Authors Joanna C. Lee and Ken Smith translate and decode the almanac’s prediction with daily listing for 2021, the Year of the Ox.
