Danika So, Stephanie Wu, & Belinda Kwan

Sat, Feb 11, 2017 from 12-4PM

Artist-to-Artist Conversation // 12-2PM

So, Wu, and Kwan will discuss their personal art and exhibition-making processes. Together, they will reflect on exhibition topics such as identity, place, and memory.

Neighbourhood Scavenger Hunt // 2-4PM

Danika Kimberly So's photographic work derives materials and content for her work from her immediate environment. By revealing elements of humour and truth in everyday objects, she examines the transformative power of the mundane.

Equipped with a camera, So will lead workshop participants throughout the neighborhood to gather miscellaneous objects and make images with them. Everyone’s creations will be documented and then posted on the Y+ contemporary website and Facebook page. Participants are welcome to bring their own cameras to document personal works.

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

This event is a part of BEYOND THE PROMISED LAND, an exhibition curated by Belinda Ho-Yan Kwan and featuring the work of Stephanie Wu and Danika Kimberly So. The project seeks to make space and time for queer first generation Chinese-Canadian folx from Toronto and GTA suburbs, and open up possibilities of queered East Asian expression and kinship on the fringes of the city. However, by focusing on the specific and detailed stories of two distinct artists, it also gestures beyond given categories (such as urban, Asian, Chinese, queer) to the manifold processes of individuation uncontainable by taxonomy.
