Candice Lin : Spice
Jun 22 - Jul 28 2019 - 7 days left
Candice Lin : Spice resembles a shop that specializes in the sale of obscure packages of herbs. The installation reflects on the histories and peculiarities relating to fictions of authenticity in racial representation specific to the area surrounding the gallery space in the Lower East Side and Chinatown. Reaching back to theatrical tourism of staged opium dens in the 19th and early 20th century, Spice looks at how histories of colonialism correlate with assumptions of purity and intoxication. Curator: Franziska Sophie Wildforster. Assistant: Elisa Thorwarth. Opening Reception: Sat, Jun 22, 6-9pm.
