Creative Journaling w/ Stephanie Wu <3

Mon, Feb 6, 2017 from 5-8PM

Can words, pictures & shapes ground us when we feel placeless? When our bodies make marks on surfaces, and when we transfer our feelings onto objects, are we also carving out places of belonging for our selves and loved ones? We may be ephemeral, but our words and traces seem to cling just enough for us to sustain and birth new relationships - to ourselves and others.

Toronto-based artist Stephanie Wu explores these questions with her current body of work. Her site-specific installations explore physical and geopolitical investigations of queerness - especially as they relate to Scarborough and Markham, Ontario, the suburbs of her adolescence.

Creative journaling constitutes a core element of Wu's artistic practice - for her, it acts as a process of self-validation and place-making when traditional notions of kinship and home are not enough to foster self-care. As a part of a group exhibition at Y+ contemporary, BEYOND THIS PROMISED LAND, Wu will lead a workshop that uses journaling, drawing, and collage activities to encourage self-expression and reflection. Materials, food, and drink will be provided.

The exhibition runs from February 4-14, 2017, and involves several community events. For more information, please visit

Y+ contemporary strives to keep the gallery accessible to visitors. If you require any accommodations, please contact us at
