Mary Oestereicher Hamill regardregard: project china, chinatown
February 27 - May 17, 2009
This dynamic body of work is built over time in layers and is distinguished by exceptionally strong community interaction-a theme of the piece. The artist's interest is in the texture of the public lives of Chinese people in traditional neighborhoods-both those who are aging in place in ancient Beijing (the hutong) and also those who dwell now in New York City's Chinatown. In "regardregard" time and place are explored through a range of modalities, visual and auditory, still and moving, printed and projected.
