Tonight through October 31, Solange Fabiao's video of Shanghai and Nanjing will be projected onto a screen at the corner of Canal and Centre Streets. The footage, part of Fabiao's Transitio series, is from the perspective of a car passenger going through various neighborhoods. At 40 minutes long, it loops from 6:30PM until 11PM each of the twelve nights. Fabiao's video of New York City was projected in Beirut last year, and projections in eight other cities (including Beijing in 2006, LA, Rio, Milan and Osaka) are planned. Gothamist will definitely be down there one night this week - it'll be grea to see the reaction of Chinatown residents who might be seeing home again though this.
There's an opening night party at 7:30PM, at the Storefront for Art and Architecture at 97 Kenmare Street. And when we think Shanghai, we want to eat xiao long bao (soup dumplings/ steamed pork buns - make sure they are the juicy ones) and visit one of our other network sites, Shanghaiist!
