Pearl River Mart, the beloved Asian emporium celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2021, was recently forced to move its flagship TriBeCa/Chinatown store after negotiations with its former landlord stalled. The iconic New York City family business pivoted quickly and reopened a new flagship in SoHo on May 1.

Pearl River’s artist-in-residence series is a bimonthly curated exhibition featuring local artists from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds. Previous artists have included New Yorker magazine cartoonists Amy Hwang, Jeremy Nguyen, Suerynn Lee, Evan Hahn, and more; photographers Louis Chan, Hiroyuki Ito, and Corky Lee; painters Arlan Huang and Kam Mak; illustrators Yumi Sakugawa and Felicia Liang; and multimedia artists Wiena Lin, Ben Sloat, and Xin Song.

CORKY LEE ON MY MIND: A PHOTOGRAPHIC TRIBUTE is available to view during Pearl River Mart store hours: every day from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Admission is free.
