Jin-me Yoon: A conversation and publication celebration

September 19, 2023

6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Join in a conversation celebrating Jin-me Yoon's solo exhibition and new publication!

Join us for a conversation to celebrate Jin-me Yoon’s exhibition, Dreaming Birds, Becoming Crane, and the new book, Jin-me Yoon: Life & Work, written by Ming Tiampo and published by Art Canada Institute. The conversation features Ming Tiampo and Andrea Kunard and will be moderated by Victoria Nolte. Jin-me Yoon will be present and answer questions during the Q & A.

Kunard and Tiampo will speak to the central questions of Vancouver-based artist Jin-me Yoon’s practice: How can we move away from colonial ways of being? How do we create communities where sustainable relationships with our environment exist? How can we build a more equitable world?   

This event takes place at CUAG in Yoon’s solo exhibition, Dreaming Birds, Becoming Crane, which brings together recent video and photographic works with a focus on intergenerational and cross-cultural transmission of knowledges. 

We will also be giving away two free copies of the book! Light refreshments provided. 

This event is co-presented with Art Canada Institute | Institut de l’art canadien and supported by the Korean Cultural Center Canada.

Access  This is a seated event; chairs are provided. A microphone will be used.
