Museum of Vancouver launches A Seat at the Table

The Museum of Vancouver and the University of British Columbia are presenting a new feature exhibition, A Seat at the Table, Chinese Immigration and British Columbia, on view from this week through January 2022.

This exhibition explores historical and contemporary stories of Chinese Canadians in BC and their struggles for belonging. It looks to food and restaurant culture as an entry point to feature stories that reveal the great diversity of immigrant experience and of the communities immigrants develop.

A Seat at the Table is an opportunity to consider the contributions that Chinese migrants and their descendants have made to British Columbia, a province built from the interaction of successive and concurrent waves of migration and uninterrupted occupation by Indigenous peoples.
