Films at the Gate salutes the grand opening of a new neighbor: the Hudson Street Gallery. The new art space in Boston’s Chinatown will open on Saturday, September 6, from 12:00-5:00 PM. The gallery is located a few doors down from the Films at the Gate lot, so drop in before you catch Saturday night’s film THE 36TH CHAMBER OF SHAOLIN.
The Hudson Street Gallery seeks to “honor the history and heritage of Chinatown and its immigrant communities while providing a home for contemporary artists to explore issues of geography, ethnicity and urbanism.” The gallery features several contemporary photographers and also historical images of Chinatown provided by The Asian Community Development Corporation. The historical photos include images of Hudson Street and the destructive impact the former Central Artery had on the neighborhood and its people.
