In Mandarin ‘da bao’ refers to take-out food. From painting to photography and sculpture to video installation, the artworks in (Da bao)(Takeout) are inspired by such diverse cultural forms and subject matter as shadow theatre, mushroom farming, tai chi, urban development, cooking, and rickshaw design. This group exhibition explores a cross-cultural and social dynamic between China and the West, specifically Canada. It focuses on the work of artists who investigate, adapt, and instil ideas from abroad into their practices, and their interpretation is transferred from one ethnicity to another.
Participating artists are Sara Angelucci and Han Xu, John Armstrong and Paul Collins, Cathy Busby, Joey Chang, Gang Chen, Brendan Fernandes, Nan Hao, Ming Hon, Knowles Eddy Knowles, Laiwan, Minjeong Oh, Ed Pien, Laurens Tan, Xiaojing Yan, and Elsie Shen Yi.
The exhibition has many media works, with works by Nan Hao, Laurens Tan, and Elsie Shen Yi presented in the TechLab.
Curated by Shannon Anderson and Doug Lewis. Organized and circulated by the Varley Art Gallery of Markham.
How do Surrey’s youth see Surrey? REMIXX.sur.RE engaged a team of youth to envision Surrey through a project involving hundreds of digital photographs and video documenting Surrey’s people and places.
Also incorporating historical images of Surrey from the City’s archives, the resulting exhibition used
- web cameras,
- interactive software,
- original audio tracks,
- as well as still prints
to create a dynamic portrait of Surrey.
