How to Discover Your Own Ancestry

In the upcoming Guided by Ghosts exhibition, artist Tessa Hulls goes on a journey to uncover her own ancestral Chinese history. She translates memoirs, travels to Hong Kong, and pores over yellowed research books.

We all have ghosts: those who have come before us whose memories we still hold. Their stories shape the way we move through the world. Tessa’s artwork is guided by her ghosts.

Maybe you’re curious about how your own family shapes your life, too.
