An exhibition by Katie Salisbury
July 27 through August 24, 2019

Open to the public at L.A.’s Chinatown Summer Nights, Thank You Enjoy is a photography exhibition created by Katie Salisbury that highlights the lives of Chinese restaurant workers in New York. The project was inspired by a simple question: If Chinese takeout is so popular in America, why do we know so little about the people who work in the industry?

Through photographs and captions in English and Chinese, Thank You Enjoy tells the stories of cooks, delivery workers, waiters, and community organizers who work in the Chinese restaurant industry. The show challenges visitors to consider the working conditions and personal sacrifices of Chinese immigrants while reconsidering what it means to be American.

5 pm – Doors open
7 pm – Artist Katie Salisbury will give a short talk on the project followed by Q&A
**Sponsored by Topo Chico & Tsingtao Beer**
