Meet the Richmond Art Gallery’s new curator!
Zoë Chan discusses her trajectory as a curator with a focus on her recent curatorial practice. She offers insight into how she researches and develops exhibitions and related programs in order to highlight a range of voices, perspectives, and aesthetics.
This edition of the Artist Salon was an online live-streamed event with Q&A by the livestream participants.
Hosted by Kathy Tycholis, RAG Education & Public Programs Coordinator.
About the Presenter:
Zoë Chan lives in Vancouver on the unceded ancestral territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, and Sel̓íl̓witulh Nations. Prior to taking on the role of curator at the Richmond Art Gallery Curator in 2022, she worked as Assistant Curator at the Vancouver Art Gallery where she curated Uncommon Language (2020-21), and co-curated Where do we go from here? (2020-21), Stories that animate us (2021), and Kids Take Over (2022)). Presented across Canada, her past curatorial projects have delved into a range of subject matter including storytelling, documentary practices, youth culture, food, and diasporic experience. She was a recipient of the Canada Council for the Arts’ Joan Lowndes Award in recognition of excellence in critical and curatorial writing (2015). Chan graduated with a Master’s degree in Art History from Concordia University.
