Organized and circulated by the Burnaby Art Gallery, and co-curated by Ellen van Eijnsbergen and Jennifer Cane, this travelling exhibition consists of artwork by Vancouver artist Anna Wong (1930-2013), and is accompanied by a full-colour, hardcover 100-page publication in two bilingual editions. With essays from notable scholars Keith Wallace and Zoë Chan, this catalogue includes over seventy of Wong’s artworks from a lifetime of travel and cultural influence: from Vancouver BC’s Chinatown to New York City, and from Quadra Island to Beijing. This exhibition is the recipient of the 2018 Canadian Museums Association Award for Excellence in Exhibitions, and is supported by Heritage Canada’s Museums Assistance Program.
