I’m quite excited about my upcoming talk on The Roving Exhibit which will be at the twocities gallery in the Moganshan arts space, a very lovely part of town.
I am looking forward to sharing what started this crazy project and stories of tough critics and holding court with an audience ranging from large groups of residents to the lone roadsweeper. And of course, a more general discussion on documenting street stories in Shanghai.
And yes, the photoboards will be there though only for the evening.
If you have any questions you want addressed during the talk, don’t hesitate to leave a comment.
Hope to see you there and don’t hesitate to come by and say hello!
Date: June 17th, Friday
Time: 7:30 pm – 9pm
Location: twocities gallery 双城现代手工艺术馆
2/F, Bldg 0, 50 Moganshan Lu, 莫干山路50号0号楼2楼
Sue Anne Tay, photographer and author of the popular blog, ShanghaiStreetStories.com, takes her photography back to the original sites via the use of portable photo boards in her latest project, “The Roving Exhibit”. Travelling across older neighborhoods such as Hongkou and Dongjiadu, Sue Anne’s exhibit engages and elicits reactions from some of Shanghai’s long-standing residents.
In a casual and intimate setting, Sue Anne will discuss with twocities her inspirations for “The Roving Exhibit”. Join us for stories from exhibit patrons and their varying impressions of street photography, the pace of urbanization and the plight of their disappearing neighborhoods.
Sue Anne’s photography has been exhibited around Shanghai and published in The Atlantic, Foreign Policy and others. She is also a co-author of “Still More Shanghai Walks: Shanghailanders & Shanghainese – Where They Lived, Worked and Played” (Old China Hand Press, 2011). Most recently, she spoke at this year’s Shanghai and Suzhou Literary Festivals.
