Chinese-ness Closing Events: Open House and Reception
Share Stories of What "Chinese-ness" Means to You

What does it mean to be Chinese? Wing Young Huie, who is ABC (American Born Chinese), is collecting photographic answers to that question in his homeland of Minnesota and the motherland of China.

Earlier this year he reflected with Minnesota Public Radio, “I’m from a place where inside I felt like everybody else [Duluth], but from the outside I stuck out. Then I visit a place that is supposedly my homeland [China] and I look like everyone, but I really feel like a foreigner.” 

Wing has photographed thousands of strangers for his many projects, but in Chinese-ness, he blends documentary and memoir for his most personal work to date.

What is your story about Chinese-ness? For this closing reception Wing invites you to share your perspectives in an informal conversation. You don’t have to be Chinese to experience Chinese-ness. Whether you have eaten it, adopted it, collected it, observed it, or were born into it – what is your Chinese-ness story?
