    Fortune, a knitted yum cha banquet, is the creation of Auckland-based artist, Bev Moon (Seyip, Cantonese, Taishanese, Chinese). It explores history and culture through drawing, sculpture, painting, and textiles. Fortune is the result of a knitting project that she began during the Auckland lockdown of late 2021.

    The exhibition explores the early Chinese settler experience through her mother and grandmother and the laws limiting Chinese migration in New Zealand until the 1950s and the prejudice that extended into the 21st century.
