Opening Reception for the exhibit: Foothills, featuring photography by Aaron Reiss

The Yale-China Association invites friends and community members to view its new exhibit, Foothills, featuring photography by Aaron Reiss. Yale-China will host an opening reception on Friday, November 9, 2012, 4:30-6:30 PM at 442 Temple Street, New Haven, CT; refreshments will be served, and Mr. Reiss will give an artist’s talk at 5:15 pm. All are welcome! Please RSVP by contacting grace.lin@yale.edu.

About the Exhibit

Foothills is a window into the village of Wan’an in one of China’s poorest provinces—Anhui Province. It is at once representative of the 50% of China’s 1.3 billion population living in agrarian communities and also incredibly specific to these people in this place—following their lives as they connect and define each other. Foothills focuses on the three disparate but deeply connected areas that define life here: The Village, The School, and The Farmland surrounding them both. The exhibit will be on display during business hours through May 31, 2013.

About the Artist

Aaron Reiss recently concluded a two-year appointment as a Yale-China Teaching Fellow in Xiuning, a county in Southern China, where he taught debate and led an oral history club. During his two years, he traveled extensively throughout Asia photographing cities. He received a Bachelors of Arts from Yale College (’10) in Environmental and Urban Studies, during which time he helped manage the Yale Farm and the New Haven Bike Collective. He also received a grant to map New Haven in a way to encourage undergraduates to explore and engage with the city. He currently lives in Brooklyn.
