Founded in 1980, the Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA) is dedicated to preserving and presenting the history, heritage, culture and diverse experiences of people of Chinese descent in the United States.

I am currently in Liverpool, doing The Mending project for Liverpool Biennale.  It is really wonderful to be back in Liverpool, afer 4 years; the city has changed quite a bit, for the better.  I truly enjoy walking daily to 52 Renshaw Street, an old Victorian arcade, to mend stranger’s clothing.  The visitors are all very eager to participate in the process, by bringing me their cloth to mend.

      I am back in NYC after traveling in Taiwan and India for most of Nov. So lovely to be able to sleep, eat and cook in my own place again. I just bought my 1 month unlimited MTA card, quite a treat! going to Chelsea market and 131 Allan street to see my friend, Todd Knope’s show, should be great fun.
