Abstract (English)

Tsang introduces this exhibition of contemporary Chinese-Canadian art addressing issues of cultural identity, race and heritage through artworks, essays, performances and a presentation of recordings produced by the Pender Guy Radio Collective. Chang discusses notions of community; Ho examines the multiplicities of Chinese identities and languages, and articulates her own experiences living in both countries; Lee discusses the transcultural spectrum of possible Chinese-Canadian identities, contemporary versus historic cultural traditions, marginalization and the dynamic of the cultural "self". Circa 48 bibl. ref.
