Tsang Kin-Wah will create a site-specific text work for the Vancouver art gallery exterior. Based on editorials taken from Vancouver newspapers in the 1980-90s, Tsang’s text critically addresses generalizations and issues surrounding the cultural climate of immigration in Vancouver from Hong Kong. The composition of the pattern is made from text in both Chinese and English. The exhibition explores the immigrant experience and marginalized voices in an attempt to unpack history and account for suppressed narratives.
 
Presented as part of the Vancouver Art Gallery’s Institute of Asian Art initiative and curated by Diana Freundl, Associate Curator, Asian Art
