Hua Jin

My Big Family


April 20 - June 10, 2012

Curator: Nan Capogna

Emerging artist Hua Jin explores issued relating to China’s one-child-per-family policy and economics. Employing photography and video, Jin documents and reflects on her personal experience as the first generation of ‘only’ child families and explores how this policy affects families, communities and the country.

An accompanying community project component invites all families in Richmond to bring in a framed family photograph/portrait to create the exhibition for Gallery 3. All pictures will be hung in the Gallery, and participating family names will be put into a draw for a new family portrait to be taken by the artist, Hua Jin.

The exhibition provides opportunities for the community to have conversations about their own experiences and views on these and related issues through Gallery organized discussions.
