Michael Jang x SFMOMA
A photographic zine documenting Michael Jang's wheat-pasted works throughout the city over the last two years. Jang expresses his unique perspectives on the Chinese-American experience, recent waves of racial hatred, and popular culture, all with his customarily playful wit and acute social awareness.
The San Francisco photographer has spent a lifetime documenting the world around him. In early 2021, Jang wheat-pasted a series of his photographic images taken in the 1970s over a boarded-up storefront on Clement Street, the heart of San Francisco’s unofficial Chinatown. Unsanctioned public installations have since become his primary form, fueling his artistic practice with new resonance.
6.5 x 10 in. Softcover, 24 pages, 2023.
Jang's Bay Area Wallscomission, The Whole Story is on view through June 18. Free to see on Floor 2.
