Mission Statement
The mission of the Chinese Culture Foundation
is to spark intercultural discovery through art,
education and engagement.
Founded in 1965, the Foundation has grown to
become a premiere center for global dialogue.
Known for its innovative and thought provoking
exhibitions and educational programs, CCF is
dedicated to building a strong community.

EXECUTIVE DIRECTORS MESSAGE


The Chinese Culture Foundation of San Francisco was founded on October 15, 1965.
It is one of the earliest cultural organizations established in the United States in the
post-World War II era.
The founders were inspired by the Civil Rights Movement during a time of change,
opportunity and ethnic awareness.
Guided by its mission, the Foundation is dedicated to community building through
intercultural engagement. For five decades, we thrived, overcame challenges and
became a premiere center for art, education and giving back to the community.
Today, we proudly celebrate our new milestones by following a bold vision to create
a Museum Without Walls and to engage new Californians. In our drive to engage
youth, families, new immigrants and those who are not connected, we have opened
minds and changed lives. Young people have become artists. A vacant storefront in
Ross Alley is now a pop-up gallery. Wentworth Alley is an open gallery while Waverly
Alley serves as a dance studio. Portsmouth Square serves as the communitys
concert hall. Chinatown has transformed into the Citys museum without walls.
As we prepare for the Foundations 50th anniversary, our commitment to community
building and our desire to be an important part of the social, economic and cultural
fabric of San Francisco is unwavering.
2014 has truly been transformational. It affirmed the impact of intercultural
engagement and multiculturalism.
Truly Yours,
Mabel S. Teng
The CCF's primary program site, located at 750 Kearny St., 3rd Floor, San Francisco, CA is a
Visual Art Center with a 3,000 square foot contemporary art gallery, an auditorium, and community
space. In addition, the Foundation's programming and exhibitions take place at 41 Ross Alley,
Pacific Heritage Museum, Portsmouth Square, various alleyways, and the pedestrian bridge at
Portsmouth Square in Chinatown. Partnerships with organizations bring the Foundation's activities
out into open space, and in museums, art centers, and storefronts.

Te Chinese Culture Foundation is THE place
for contemporary Chinese art. It has no peers
among public museums in the quality of the art
and the engagement with the public!
-Gordon H Chang, Olive H. Palmer
Professor in the Humanities and professor
of American history at Stanford University

I am tremendously impressed at the
direction of the Foundation and the
work being exhibited.
- the late Michael Sullivan,
preeminent Chinese art scholar
The goal of the Visual Art Center is to
promote the most innovative artists today

Into the Nearness of Distance by Summer Mei Ling Lee 2014
CURIOSITY BOX
BETWEEN MODERN
AND CONTEMPORARY

LAM TUNG-PANG
FONG CHUNG-RAY
CROSS GENERATIONS

Summer Mei Ling Lees Into the Near-
ness of Distance is the sixth XianRui
exhibition, debuting in three locations,
the CCF Visual Art Center, Yerba
Buena Center for the Arts in San Fran-
cisco and He Xiangning Art Museum
in Shenzhen, China. Lees collabora-
tive solo embodies both the artists
creative process, as well as the fresh
presentation approach that echoes
the geographical and psychological
proximity depicted by her work.
The art of Dora Hsiung at initial impact is
straightforward and unabashedly decora-
tive, yet upon analysis it proves to contain
subtleties to engage the eye and the
mind. As curator Abby Chen notes, Her
works embody the diverse experience as
a Chinese woman artist who has lived on
multiple continents, enriching her vision and
perspectives.
In the launch of the agship Xian Rui series,
Beili Liu debuts her stunning Lure instal-
lation. Liu explores the Chinese myth of
the invisible Red Thread that binds lovers
by the ankle from birth. Beili Liu is known
for her uncanny ability to transform simple,
everyday materials in curious ways that are
evocative of both her Chinese heritage and
her experience in the United States. Her
elegant installations and sculptural work
explore transience, fragility and the passing
of time. 4
Stella Zhangs uniquely complex and
engaging 0-Viewpoint installation explores
the constantly shifting inner landscapes
of self and femininity. Her latest work, 0
Viewpoint, which made the debut for Xian
Rui 2010, was
created to convey the idea that everything
came into existence by beginning and
ending at zero. Zhang, was born in Beijing
and studied in both China and Japan before
moving to the United States where she cur-
rently lives in Palo Alto, CA.
White Ink features the work of abstract
ink painter Zheng Chongbin. The
highly anticipated show is comprised
of fteen new and site-specic large
scale pieces, which include both paint-
ings and video projections. Zhengs
work has been hailed as unprece-
dented, and embodies the essence of
traditional Chinese ink painting as well
as the physicality of western abstract
traditions.

As a tourist, Lam is bafed by American culture;
but as an artist, he welcomes the opportunity to
examine up close a society he had only seen from
afar. While the exhibition displays curious ideas
and unfamiliar objects that Lam encountered in his
travels, the ultimate curiosity is Lam himself, and
individuals who nds insight in misunderstandings.

-LEAP Magazine
Fong Chung-rays achievement is further
emblematic of the generation of Diasporic Chinese
artists who were dispersed internationally after
Chinas Civil War but who signicantly advanced
Chinese visual art and culture in powerfully original
and visually compelling ways. This generation has
yet to be fully appreciated and recognized, as it
sets the stage for todays ourishing of Chinese
art globally.

PRESENT TENSE

In the hands of 31 contemporary artists from the U.S.
and beyond, San Franciscos Chinatown becomes a
laboratory of diverse ideas about contemporary culture
in the Present Tense. Takes viewers outside of the
common framing of questions of identity to get a clearer
look at underlying truths.

In contrast to the indicated ethnicity of the organization, the work


selected to show at CCF purposely subverts the pre-conceived
notion of Chinese ownership over ink. To expose the frailty of
Chinese domination over this medium, none of participating artists
work within the traditional Chinese form of ink art. Further test-
ing the standard perceptions of ink, the show at CCF will feature
several powerful pieces by female artists. The prevalence of female
artists in the exhibit challenges directly the notion that ink is a male
dominated eld. Our goal is to inspire a new discourse of ink.
The failure to imagine ink beyond the common nationalistic and
sexist beliefs is a product of the inherent paradigm, which
surrounds the concept of ink - a construct that insists on a linear,
historical narrative, which places an implied culture and sex to ink
art. If we intend to overcome these self-imposed limitations, artists
working from hybridized viewpoints must be embraced. Moment
for Ink showcases work by both established and emerging art-
ists with very diverse backgrounds. Aside from the obvious intent
of inclusion and broadening participation, the exhibition wants to
celebrate and introduce some most outstanding ink work by non-
Chinese artists.
-Abby Chen, Artistic Director and Curator
Chinese Culture Foundation
THE MOMENT FOR I NK
CHALLENGE PERCEPTIONS
LOCALLY, GLOBALLY

WOMEN

The default position con-
tinues to be a belief that the
state and the Chinese art world
are oppressive towards liberal cul-
ture in China which might have led to a
paucity of exhibitions exploring gender and
sexuality in Chinese art and visual culture; yet
the fact that there has been no backlash, makes
the omission seem even more curious and problem-
atic. Have the discourses of post-identityeffectively
considering identity as a historical formationin Euro-
America moved to China? At the same time, the antidote to
this cannot be the sort of clunky identity-themed exhibitions
that essentialize and fall back on xed or known subjectivities.
It is in this regard that the curator of this exhibition has marvel-
ously succeeded: Not only does Abby Chen suggest that there
is an extraordinary amount of visual material being produced by
emerging and mid-career artists in both China and abroad that
is providing fresh perspectives on gender and sexuality, but,
also, she does so in a way in which identity categories elude
xitywithout sacricing embodied politics.

C O M M U N I T Y

The Keywords School, led by artist Xu Tan,
is a pilot art education model to engage new
Californians. Keywords is where immigrant
youth became artists and transformed a va-
cant storefront into a pop-up gallery.
The work of Yu and her cohorts represents
the rst time that artist Xu Tan, 57, has incor-
porated youth into his Keyword project.
- Sam Whiting, San Francisco Chronicle
The Keywords Project is like a river, you
dont see where it begins or ends. Only from
time to time, some ndings got thrown to the
banks for you to see. Its happening is also
like a river, here today and there tomorrow.

HML IM ARK
The Him Mark Lai Learning Center is the hub of
educational and engagement activities. In its rst year, the
HML Learning Center has launched activities that have
engaged over 8,000 individuals of all ages: Dynasty to
Democracy Walking Tours, In Search of Roots Seminars,
and Roots California Excursions.
The Him Mark Lai Learning Center was founded on June
22, 2013 at the Chinese Culture Foundation by Mrs.
Laura Lai and Dr. Rolland and Kathryn Lowe, with support
from Tatwina and Richard Lee, as well as the CCF Board
of Directors.

Walking Tours
As part of our Museum Without Walls, the
Democracy walking tour challenges the
perception of Chinatown as just a
colorful, quaint neighborhood. Thousands
of visitors learn about how actively the
community has pursued justice.
Participation
7,439 elementary and high school students
Over 1,000 college students and adults
Highlights of Educational Content
Yick Wo v Hopkins creates the legal precedent that a law which
seems neutral is unconstitutional if it is used to
discriminate against a particular group.
The Chinese Progressive Association leads the movement to
raise San Franciscos minimum wage.
- In the 1970s, Chinese for Afrmative Action led a coalition that
overturned discriminatory regulations barring Asians, women, and
other groups from joining the SF police and re departments.
INSPIRING ACTION
The Chinatown tour that Darin Ow-Wing led surprised me. As a lecturer
at SFSUs Asian American Studies Dept and a long time resident of SF, I
thought I knew everything I needed to know about Chinatown. WRONG.
Not only did he give me a whole new insight to the social history of the
neighborhood, he illuminated a part of history of the trials and triumphs
of a peoples struggle of resistance. The tour was a lesson plan in itself,
about human rights and self determination. Anyone who wants a deeper
introspection of this dynamic part of the city should denitely take this
tour.

Southern Chinese Culture
A deeply informative presentation on the unique development of
southern Chinese culture, encompassing language and dialects (i.e.
Cantonese, Toisanese), food, migration and its relation to the makeup
of modern day Chinatown.
Speaker: Victor Lim, legislative aide to the San Francisco Board of
Supervisors, graduated from UC Berkeley with degrees in Asian
Studies and Asian American Studies.
Waking the Green Tiger
The Him Mark Lai Learning Center hosted the West Coast premiere
of Waking the Green Tiger, which documents the successful efforts
of Chinese villagers, NGOs, and media to halt the construction of
dozens of dams on the Nu River in southwest China, thereby saving
their way of life and protecting critical habitat. Lihong Shi, who plays
a major role in these events and creates some of the rst documenta-
tion of environmental activism in China, engaged in a lively discussion
with the audience.
The Role Model Series
Introduces Asian Americans and their career paths, with the goal to
having a dialogue about career possibilities for youth, and the future
of Chinese in America.
Seminar Highlights
The Roots Seminars explore current trends and topics relevant to
Chinese American life, culture and history. Taking inspiration from
the seminars that Him Mark Lai presented about Chinese
history and ethnic studies for the In Search of Roots program,
these seminars provide new insights and introduce the public to
pioneers in various elds.
