Join us for a free, in-person tour of the Art Gallery at Evergreen’s current exhibition, "Jin-me Yoon: Long Time So Long."

Free. Visitors are welcome to drop in to this tour.

About the exhibition:

"Long Time So Long" presents a new body of multimedia work by acclaimed Korean-born, Vancouver-based artist Jin-me Yoon. The exhibition combines photography, video and a soundscape of collective humming featuring the voices of local youth of Korean ancestry. Yoon’s art explores our collective grappling with the pandemic, from a diasporic perspective and with a focus on rest, repair and coming together in difference.

About the artist:

Jin-me Yoon is a Korean-born, Vancouver-based artist situated on the unceded territories of the Coast Salish peoples of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Wauthuth Nations whose work explores the entangled relations of tourism, militarism, and colonialism. Since the early ’90s, she has used photography, video, and performance to situate her personal experience of migration in relation to unfolding historical, political, and ecological conditions. Through experimental cinematography and the performative gestures of family, friends, and community members, Yoon reconnects repressed pasts with damaged presents, creating the conditions for different futures. Staging her work in charged landscapes, Yoon finds specific points of reference across multiple geopolitical contexts. In so doing, she brings worlds together, affirming the value of difference.

Over the last three decades, Jin-me Yoon’s work has been presented internationally in hundreds of exhibitions, and she has mentored many students over the years while teaching at Simon Fraser University’s School for the Contemporary Arts, Vancouver. In 2018, she was elected as a Fellow into the Royal Society of Canada, and, in 2022, she won the prestigious Scotiabank Photography Award.

This exhibition is part of the 2023 Capture Photography Festival Selected Exhibition Program.

The artist acknowledges the support of the Canada Council for the Arts and the British Columbia Arts Council supported by the Province of British Columbia.  

Long Time So Long is on view at the Art Gallery at Evergreen from February 18–April 30, 2023.
