Movement Lab, Milstein Center LL020

Grace Li’s installation focuses on their experience growing up as a first-generation Chinese American daughter to two Chinese immigrant parents in Nashua, New Hampshire.  Incorporating scans of the family archive, childhood videos, and their own film photography, the installation explores themes of growing up, the unreliability of memory, and family history.  

Installation runs from 2:30-7:00pm Monday, April 3rd through Friday, April 7th. Drop-ins are welcome!
