越界/粵界 (transgression/cantosphere)

Hong Kong Exile

in collaboration with Zoe Lam and Howie Tsui

January 22 - March 28, 2015

Opening reception: Thursday, January 22 | 7-10pm

In 越界/粵界 (transgression/cantosphere), interdisciplinary art company Hong Kong Exile (Natalie Tin Yin Gan, Milton Lim, Remy Siu), in collaboration with linguist Zoe Lam and artist Howie Tsui, grapple with local and international pressures on their mother culture. The exhibit strikes back with a potent celebratory engagement with Cantonese language coupled with a reflection on the relationship between urban planning and the multiculturalisation of “Historic Chinatown.” A hopeful assertion of the value of diversity, 越界/粵界 (transgression/cantosphere) challenges forces of homogenization and invites the public to consider what actions and invocations are called for in the quest for diverse cultural vitality in Vancouver’s urban core and around the world.
