Every weekend in May 2019!
Drop in for a free informal guided tour in English and/or Mandarin of the exhibition Karen Tam: With wings like clouds hung from the sky.
Tam has produced an immersive installation re-imagining Lee Nam’s painting studio in Victoria’s 1930’s Chinatown that evokes the presence of this unknown Chinese-Canadian artist. The project makes visual the influences of East and West that shaped the context Lee Nam worked in, including the connections to lineages and kinships among Chinese, Hong Kongese, Taiwanese and Canadian ink brush painters.
Learn more about the local artists involved in this project, as well as Karen Tam’s research on Lee Nam and his connections to Canadian painter Emily Carr at this informal tour and discussion.
No registration required, just show up!
Tam（譚）以藝術家Lee Nam於1930年在維多利亞唐人街的畫室為靈感，創作了沉浸式裝置來喚起觀眾對這位不知名藝術家的認識。該作品表達了東西方文化對Lee創作環境的影響，也表現了中國大陸、中國香港, 台灣和加拿大水墨畫家血統和血緣的傳承和聯繫。
參與我們的導覽了解更多參與此作品的當地藝術家，包括譚凱文對Lee Nam的研究及其和加拿大藝術家Emily Carr的聯繫。
