Artist Talk: Clare Yow

Location: Zoom

Artist Talk: Clare Yow 
Monday, March 14, 2022
6:30 – 7:30pm
Zoom
 


Join us for a virtual artist talk with Britannia Art Gallery’s current exhibiting artist, Clare Yow. Learn more about Clare’s practice, and hear her discuss the work and themes in her current exhibition commonwealth. A Q&A will follow Clare’s presentation.
 


CLARE YOW (b. 1985, Singapore) is a Chinese-Canadian visual artist residing, working, and parenting on the unceded, ancestral, and occupied homelands of the x?m?θk??y??m (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) and s?l?ílw?ta?? /Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) First Nations, Vancouver, BC. Her lens-based works revolve around the politics of identity and being—in particular, how race, transnationality, and feminist culture intersect with the materials of everyday life.
 
Clare holds an MFA in Visual Art from the University of British Columbia and an Honours BFA in Photographic Studies from Ryerson University. Since 2003, Clare has participated in exhibitions and events across Canada such as at the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery and University of British Columbia (Vancouver), Two Rivers Gallery (Prince George), The Works Art and Design Festival (Edmonton), Koffler Gallery (Toronto), and The Rooms Provincial Art Gallery (St. John’s).
 
Parallel to her studio art practice, Clare is also co-founder and runs United Aunties Arts Association (established in 2020), which supports artists and artisans with racialized and equity seeking backgrounds through collaborative art-making initiatives. United Aunties is rooted in Vancouver’s Chinatown in Clare’s studio at BCA Sun Wah.
