Artist Talk: Paul Wong in the Scholar’s Study
August 24 @ 4:00 pm
Free to attend (Registration is required)
Join us in the Scholar’s Study of Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden as Paul Wong talks about the idea behind his “Haam Sui Fow Wun Goh Wah (Saltwater City Vancouver)” text piece and his year-long residency at the Garden. The talk will be followed by a Q&A session.
“鹹水埠溫哥華/咸水埠温哥华/Haam Sui Fow Wun Goh Wah (Saltwater City-Vancouver)” is the first new site-specific work to be created as part of Paul Wong’s Occupying Chinatown residency. These two text pieces acknowledge Chinatown’s Toisanese settlers, and are presented at the Garden: one “wooden” and the other neon.
