Curator: Shaun Dacey
Acclaimed Canadian artist Ho Tam interrogates the mediated construction of public persona, revealing diverse facets of the self through a selection of photo, video, artist books and magazines spanning his career. The exhibition deconstructs his recent book works displaying selected pages and images on the gallery walls connecting with earlier works. Installed organically the work exists as a free flowing collage. The works blend together to create a larger installation engaging the breadth of Tam’s artistic production.
RICHMOND ART GALLERY AT CANADA LINE
In partnership with Richmond Public Art and Capture Festival
This spring the art gallery partners with Capture Festival, City of Richmond Public Art Program and InTransit BC to present a series of photo-based installations at the four Canada Line stations in Richmond (Bridgeport, Aberdeen, Lansdowne, and Brighouse). Interrogating the context of #3 Road as a transit hub and main shopping thoroughfare, artists Marisa K. Holmes, Ho Tam, Karilynn Ming Ho and David Semeniuk are each producing site specific installations on display through April.
