We are pleased to present the opening reception of Paul Wong’s exhibition Suk-Fong, How Are You? on January 12. Wong launched his Occupying Chinatown residency at the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden in April 2018. He has since been creating works inspired by over 700 letters in Chinese sent by 90 writers to his late mother, Suk-Fong Wong, between 1946 and 2016. The resulting exhibition includes family artifacts, photography, video, letters, and a neon. Evoking familial memory and histories, this exhibition offers a unique perspectives on Chinese-Canadian lives, demonstrating the interconnectedness between the personal and the political.

Join us for an artist talk on January 19 at 2pm featuring Paul Wong and panelists from the City of Vancouver’s Public Art Program, Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden, and collaborating artists of past Occupying Chinatown projects. Registration is required for this free public event. Please visit:
