In partnership with Chinese Culture Center of San Francisco and Chinatown Community Development Center, funded by San Francisco Arts Commission IAC program, Peace Movements is a ten-week durational installation artwork by artist Justin Hoover and a cohort of performers and collaborators. Through an environmental installation that will change and evolve weekly, Hoover investigates the contradictions of fighting as a form of peace and resistance as a form of justice. Furthermore, Hoover expands on his recent work exploring the knife-edge balance of violence and non-violence. Public viewers are prompted to investigate movement, meditation, and presence within an immersive installation environment.
Special thanks to the San Francisco Arts Commission, Community Challenge Grants Program, Chinatown Community Development Center and the Chinatown community.
Participating or included artists: Tra Bouscaren, Nanda D'Agostino, Justin Hoover, Jalessa Johnston, Melissa Wyman, Chris Treggiari, Yunuen Rhi, Michael Zheng and Chinatown Youth.
