BEHIND THE SCENES OF AN EXHIBITION: EMILE BOCIAN IN CHINATOWN

January 28 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

In partnership with the Museum of Chinese in America, the Center has launched a new online exhibition, An Unlikely Photojournalist: Emile Bocian in Chinatown, a never-before-seen collection of images of Manhattan’s Chinatown in the 1970s and 80s. Co-curators Kevin Chu, assistant director of collections at MOCA, and Lauren Gilbert, senior manager of public services at the Center for Jewish History, will share a behind-the-scenes look into Bocian’s life, his collection and the genesis of the exhibition. Bocian’s grandniece and nephew will also be in attendance to share their memories.

Emile Bocian (1912-1990) was the child of Jewish immigrants who spent the last two decades of his life living and working in Chinatown as a photojournalist for The China Post, a Chinese-language daily. He photographed protests, celebrations, and scenes of daily life, as well as storefronts and streetscapes that provide a glimpse into a vanishing New York.
