Event description
We invite you to spend an hour with Xiaoyu Weng, who will share with us her insights into the work of Miriam Cahn at The Power Plant.

About this event

Weng, newly appointed Curator of Contemporary art at the AGO, curated Ten Thousand Things at the Sifang Art Museum in Nanjing earlier this year, with works by Miriam Cahn and Claudia Martinez Garrau.

Weng’s interest in bringing Cahn and Garrau together rests at the conjunction of these artists’ respective explorations of landscape, intergenerational trauma, and of human relations to their socially-built environments and nature.

In an intimate and conversational setting, Weng will share her perspectives and offer pertinent ways of engaging with Miriam Cahn: ME AS HAPPENING, curated by Gaëtane Verna at the Power Plant.

More on Xiaoyu Weng

Xiaoyu Weng is the Carol and Morton Rapp Curator, Modern and Contemporary Art at the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) in Toronto. Her curatorial and writing practices focus on the impact of globalization, identity, and decolonization, as well as the intersection of art, science, and technology. Previously, she was The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Associate Curator at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York and Director of Asian Programs at Kadist Art Foundation, San Francisco/Paris. In 2018-19, Weng served as the Curator of the 5th Ural Industrial Biennial of Contemporary Art in Yekaterinburg, Russia.

In response to the Ontario Government’s requirement that individuals provide proof of being fully vaccinated in order to attend performances, events, galleries and museums, Harbourfront Centre including The Power Plant has implemented several COVID-19 related protocols including: the introduction of a mandatory vaccination policy where completion of a health screening along with presentation of proof of 2nd dose vaccination is asked upon entry to all of its venues and facilities, the required donning of a mask or face covering while inside the building, increased sanitation stations and cleaning of high-frequency touch points, and limited capacity to ensure that physical distancing can be achieved.
