Fold: Golden Venture paper sculptures

“Fold: Golden Venture paper sculptures” is now on display at the Museum of Chinese in America. The exhibition tells a visual story of the undocumented Chinese immigrants aboard the Golden Venture cargo ship in 1993. The undocumented immigrants were caught and sentenced to four years in the York County Prison. And during the time, they made paper sculptures to showcase their idea of the American dream and pay homage to their home country, China. Now, more than 40 sculptures made by the detainees are on display, along with archive materials, and multimedia installations. Curator Andrew Rebatta shares how looking at the past can offer solutions to the current immigration issues.
