The Asian Institute presents

HER(s): A video screening

The screening brings together video works by 7 Asian Canadian women artists. Produced post-2000, the works focus on femininity, sexuality, cultural stereotypes, and family history, through discussing and narrating around Asian Canadian identity politics in a new age. Different, yet similar, experiences of racialized women/ groups have been addressed in these artists’ artistic gestures from the past decade to the present. Informed and influenced by their precedents, a younger generation of Asian Canadian artists are manifesting a continuous exploration of identities and its urgency in their respective practices.

Works by Maria Patricia Abuel, Lesley Loksi Chan, Chun Hua Catherine Dong, Linda Lee, Dorica Manuel, Lisa Wong, Winnie Wu

The screening will be followed by a reception. Free refreshments and cash bar. #PWYC

Curated by Henry Heng Lu

Presented by Call Again, in collaboration with the Canadian Studies Program at the University of Toronto. Special thanks to Dr. Lisa Mar.

Call Again, based in Toronto, Canada, is dedicated to creating space for contemporary Asian diasporic art practices. (https://www.facebook.com/callagaintoronto/)
