The Cheng Yu Tung East Asian Library cordially invites you to the Opening Ceremony of "Line & Verse Exhibition: An Exploration of Visual Arts and Poetry, between Canada and Taiwan" on November 14th, 2018.


This project was initiated by artists Carlina Chen (Canada) and Hsieh, Chi-Chang (Taiwan), who share a mutual interest in the intersection of poetry and the visual arts and the fostering of a cultural conversation. In the fall of 2016, one poem from each of three Canadian poets, Anne Carson, Patrick Lane and Claire Caldwell, was selected; and three works were chosen from two contemporary Taiwanese poets, Yu, Kwang-Chung and Wang, Feng-Hsiang.


The exhibition features works on paper by 21 Canadian artists and 21 Taiwanese artists, and one Canadian performance artist who will perform a response to the artwork and poetry during the opening reception. The Cheng Yu Tung East Asian Library will host their first Canada exhibition.


At the opening ceremony, there will be a poetry reading by Claire Caldwell, spoken word performance by Bojana Videkanic, and remarks.
