750 Hornby St, Vancouver

Hong Kong artist Tsang Kin-Wah critically addresses some of the complexities surrounding migration, cultural identity and racism in these site-specific works. Spread over two locations, the Vancouver Art Gallery's public art space, Offsite and the Gallery's Howe Street Façade, each work presents a large-scale composition using English texts to form floral and animal patterns. Deceitfully decorative, the content draws from discriminatory language that appeared in newspapers and political campaigns in Vancouver during the 1887 anti-Chinese riots, the mid-1980s immigration from Hong Kong and most recently, the heated exchanges around the foreign buyers and the local housing market.

This is his first exhibition in Canada.
