The Museum of Chinese in America recently launched two exciting new exhibitions, drawing an enthusiastic crowd that packed the opening reception on April 26.

The first, America through a Chinese Lens, showcases photography of American life as captured by Chinese and Chinese American artists and new immigrants, photographers and non-professionals alike. The images identify the specific ways in which the Chinese have used the camera to see this country—its beauty, contradictions, and realities.

See the photographs below, and check out the second exhibit, June 4, 1989: Media and Mobilization Beyond Tiananmen Square, here.

America through a Chinese Lens will be on display at MOCA through September 10. Click here for ticketing information.
