“24 Hour Exhibition: Making Chinatown” is scheduled tomorrow evening, March 20th, 5-9pm at Kadist, San Francisco. “Making Chinatown” will be on view in Kadist’s three spaces, showing a seven-channel video installation by Singaporean artist Ming Wong, which was originally commissioned by REDCAT in Los Angeles. Wong investigates the issues that surround identity, linguistics, translation, dislocation and the history of cinema. Wong remakes the classic 1974 neo-noir film “Chinatown” originally by Roman Polanski though the reenactment of key scenes that were shot onsite in the gallery, imitating roles originally played by Jack Nicholson, Faye Dunaway, John Huston and Belinda Palmer. In Kadist the seven channels will play simultaneously where time and space within the film will merge and flatten into a disillusioned experience. There will be a talk at 7pm with Aram Moshayedi, the Associate Curator of the Gallery at REDCAT, Los Angeles. If you miss tomorrow evening, there are special extended hours as follows: March 20 5-9pm and following 2 Saturdays & Sundays: March 23 + 24; March 30 + 31, 12-5pm.
