Tour 1: Shared Spaces by Philip Poon

Saturday, April 20, 2024
2 – 3:40PM

What role do four spaces have in shaping culture in Chinatown? Through a guided tour of an iconic Asian department store, an activist architecture gallery, a community library, and the mall where “Chinatown meets high fashion,” participants will gain an understanding of what role these spaces play in shaping Chinatown.

The tour will feature talks from Mrs. Chen (Founder of Pearl River Mart), Michael Robinson Cohen (Citygroup), and Sean Ferguson (Chatham Square Library).

This project is a part of the What Can We Do? artist grant program, presented by Asian American Arts Alliance (A4) and is supported by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. Special thanks to Council Members Christopher Marte and Sandra Ung.
