Marking Place Speaker Series: Jin-me Yoon




    Forums & Talks

    Please join us for a talk by Jin-me Yoon at the Vancouver Art Gallery as part of Marking Place, a year-long lecture series that "looks at visual art, design and art institutions in relation to ideas concerning Indigeneity, colonialism, immigration and national identity." Here's how the VAG presents the talk:

    "Artist Jin-me Yoon speculates on significant shifts in her thinking and making of the last 25 years by looking at past and current work within larger discursive changes. In this artist talk, Yoon considers the movement between nationalism and transnationalism, displacement and emplacement, the local and the global, self and other, the representational and the abstract, and the human subject and the natural world in order to ask how we can generate spaces for exchange that create possibilities of transformative alternative futures. Her postcard project entitled Souvenirs of the Self, produced at the site of Canada’s first national park in Banff, Alberta in 1991, provides the main departure point to consider nationalism in the context of tourism, while her recent postcard project in progress at another Canadian national park, Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, bookends her consideration of these questions."

    Presented by the Vancouver Art Gallery.

    This presentation is part of the Institute of Asian Art Symposium. Registration information will be available in April on the VAG's website.
