Artist Talk

August 24, 2018
Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden

On a beautiful sunny day in the Scholar’s Courtyard, Paul Wong spoke in depth about his year-long residency, 身在唐人街 / OCCUPYING CHINATOWN. This first artist talk elaborated on the importance behind the residency, specifically with regards to Wong’s identity as Chinese-Canadian, his connection with Chinatown, and his desire to return to the community to create new contemporary works of art in this context. The event was at capacity—attended by a cross-cultural and intergenerational audience—and concluded with a lively and informative Q&A.
