Vivian will present her findings from 6 months of museological research, which included visiting 120 museums in the US.

A Wizard of Oz Journey from the US to Cuba

ACC Fellow: Yang Yuan Yuan
This session will be conducted in Putonghua.

 
Yuanyuan will share her experiences from her research on diasporic Chinese female artists in the US and Cuba. Yuanyuan’s journey began with her fascination of the first Chinese-American female film director Esther Eng, and led to unexpected discoveries and beautiful encounters, such as meeting Coby Yee, a 92-year old former nightclub dancer, and a passionate dance troupe based in San Francisco. Yuanyuan will also present the teaser of her new and exciting film project as a result from these experiences. Click here to register
