The Yellow Pages

Arranged from A to Z in 26 segments, The Yellow Pages looks at the relationship between imagery and text in the context of the Asian experience within North America and beyond. In a playful and satirical manner, the video roams through past and present, from the Chinese railroad Hiroshima and the Korean War, to the arrivals of the Boat People and Hong Kong money. Both simplistic and complex in its presentation The Yellow Pages seeks to interact with viewers, never allowing one single reading.

TWN acknowledges that in New York we are on the unceded territory of the Lenni Lenape, Canarsie, Shinecock, and Munsee peoples and challenges the harm that continues to be inflicted upon Indigenous and People of Color communities here and abroad, which is why we all need to be part of the struggle for rights, equality and justice.
