FOLD: Golden Venture Paper Sculptures

The exhibition presents the story of the passengers of the Golden Venture, a ship carrying 286 undocumented Chinese immigrants that ran aground in New York City in 1993. Over forty sculptures from MOCA’s collection collectively created by the immigrants while detained for years at York County Prison will be on display. Through symbolic representations that include caged birds and American eagles, the sculptures give shape to both the quantitative and qualitative time spent waiting for uncertain legal outcomes. Comp admission with ACAW brochure.
