Event description

Description

An artist talk will feature Paul Wong and panelists from the City of Vancouver’s Public Art Program, Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden, and collaborating artists of past 身在唐人街/Occupying Chinatown projects. Using the year-long residency as a case study, an inclusive forum-style discussion will take place around the implications of having an artist in residence at Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden.

About Paul Wong

Paul Wong (b. Prince Rupert) grew up, and continues to live in Vancouver. Wong has been creating daring work for over 40 years, pushing the boundaries of conventional cultural stereotypes and art. He has produced large-scale interdisciplinary artworks in unexpected public spaces since the 1970s. His work subverts stereotypes in form and content. His works can be found at paulwongprojects.com.

身在唐人街/ / Occupying Chinatown is a public art project commissioned by the City of Vancouver Public Art Program in partnership with Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden.
