Lee Nam, an artist and Chinese immigrant to British Columbia at the turn of the 20th century, is known to us today through the journals of Emily Carr, his friend and fellow painter. In this immersive installation, Montreal-based artist Karen Tam re-imagines Lee Nam’s painting studio, on Cormorant Street in Victoria’s Chinatown, to evoke the presence of this unknown artist.
Presented in association with the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria.
