  • With a Single Step: Stories in the Making of America
    Tue, Sep 1, 2009 - Thu, Dec 31, 2020

    With a Single Step: Stories in the Making of America, MOCA’s new core exhibit, will bring to life the Museum’s unique historical content and birth a compelling art work by fusing itself with the architectural heart of its new home designed by Maya Lin on Centre Street.  This presentation is an innovative approach to museum and exhibition design.  It will facilitate a new way of interacting with content: through the evocative use of space that stirs visitors’ emotions and breaks down barriers to deeper learning and understanding.

    The Museum of Chinese in America's Spring/Summer 2019 exhibition The Moon Represents My Heart: Music, Memory and Belonging will focus on the transformative power of music identity in immigrant Chinese communities from the 1850s to the present. During this period, disparate music genres converged with historic milestones, including changes in U.S. immigration legislation and China’s soft power emergence.

     

    The exhibition is co-curated by Hua Hsu, staff writer at The New Yorker, and MOCA’s curatorial team: Herb Tam, Curator and Director of Exhibitions, and Andrew Rebatta, Associate Curator.
