Asian Pacific American Network of Oregon says
A Tale of Two Ghettoes (The Future Specters of Chinatown Past) by artist Horatio Hung-Yan Law is a multimedia installation that combines real-time performance, video projection with community discussion via social media and video conferencing, simultaneously connecting Chinatown in Old-Town Portland with the developing Jade District in East Portland.

Join us at either location (Jade/APANO Multicultural Space or Red Robe Teahouse & Cafe) for this one-night double event that features performance of traditional instruments by musicians from Wisdom Arts Academy and the taiko company Unit Souzou, followed by discussion and light refreshments at both sites.

This project is a response to the effects of gentrification in Portland’s Old-Town and Chinatown. A Tale of Two Ghettoes explores the intriguing territory of community and cultural displacement and reverse longing; mediates the space between nostalgia for the past and practical realities of the present; and arbitrates the delicate balance of preservation and assimilation.


For more information about APANO's cultural work, please contact Community Engagement Manager, Luann Algoso at luann@apano.org.


A Tale of Two Ghettoes is presented by APANO’s Arts + Media Collectives “Mic Check!” series, and the Red Robe Teahouse & Café in Old-Town Chinatown. This project is funded by Caldera as a part of “A Day In Paradise”, in connection to the exhibition “Fallen Fruit of Portland” presented by Caldera and Fallen Fruit (David Burns and Austin Young) at Portland Art Museum in October 2015. APANO’s “Mic Check! Voices from the Margins” is funded through a project grant by the Regional Arts and Culture Council (RACC).
