Art+Village+City (2015)


Supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Art+Village+City was an interdisciplinary research studio taught by professors Margaret Crawford and Winnie Wong at the University of California, Berkeley. The studio investigated a wide range of urban art villages in the Pearl River Delta in China through onsite fieldwork, and culminated in a multimedia exhibition in both Berkeley and Shanghai.  I documented the scope of the project through an extensive series of watercolors, which became central to the project’s website, exhibition and catalogue.
