So grateful for an incredible exhibition and all who came out to the opening in Hamilton! None of this would have happened without good friends and volunteers who were willing to pitch in, assist with transportation, installation and take down of a epic show with near ninety images in one action-packed week in Canada. It's an honor to be named Alumni of the Year and receive the Distinguished Alumni Award. Thanks RUC for your support of this exhibition!

Friends in Hamilton, Ontario and beyond, it's my pleasure to bring you an epic reincarnation of last year's solo exhibition "A Floating Population" at MOCA museum in NYC, this weekend only at #SuperCrawl2015 the largest art crawl event of the year!
Except this time the venue won't be a polished museum, the exhibition will be gloriously re-imagined in an expansive vacant furniture show room (formerly Ricca's Furniture) at the center of the one and only James St. in Hamilton with an expected near 200,000 art crawl attendees.
Around 90 images from "A Floating Population" will be on display Sept 11-12, for 2 days only! It takes much longer to transport and install the show, just to give you an idea of the scope of our ambition!
It's especially a joy and privilege to bring this show to Hamilton and to you, friends who have rallied and supported me through so much, but have not been able to travel long distances to shows in NY and abroad. This show is for you, and I'm looking forward to seeing you there!
This Friday, Sept 11th -- 7-9pm
245 James Street N., Hamilton, ON
*Street entrance to show on 2nd floor (above The Forge)

It's hard to believe we're already at the halfway mark of my first major solo exhibition "A Floating Population" since it opened at MOCA this past December. We've received remarkable enthusiasm and support both in the community and beyond for the show, which features around eighty images spanning four years of work in Chinatown. Through public programming, panel discussions and walking tours around the exhibition at the museum, we're able to engage audiences with this body of work in a richer and more dynamic way than ever before. What's especially exciting to me is that all new current exhibits at the museum ("Portraits of New York Chinatown" by Tomie Arai, and "The Lee Family Since 1888" show) are taking a closer look at contemporary Chinatown, making this a distinctly historical season for the museum and the neighborhood.
The show is up till April 13th, so I wholly encourage a visit to MOCA in Chinatown soon! In the meantime, thank you Fast Company Design, Epsilon Magazine (below) and countless visitors for highlighting the show thus far.
