Chinatown Art Brigade
The Chinatown Art Brigade (CAB) is a collective of Asian-American artists, media makers, and activists with roots in New York City’s Chinatown neighborhood. Their work is driven by a deep love for their community and the fundamental belief that fighting against racial and economic inequity is central to our cultural and art-making process. Since its founding in 2015, the Chinatown Art Brigade has facilitated a series of community-led responses to gentrification and displacement, created in partnership with the grassroots organization CAAAV & the Chinatown Tenants Union. Chinatown Art Brigade was founded in 2015 by artists Tomie Arai, Betty Yu (both The LP 2012 Create Change alumni artists) and ManSee Kong.
