Karen Tam. We Are All Robbers

Pagodas from Karen Tam's exhibition

KAREN TAM. WE ARE ALL ROBBERS

From October 10, 2019 to February 9, 2020

Curator : Marcel Blouin

An exhibition produced and circulated by EXPRESSION, Centre d’exposition de Saint-Hyacinthe.

With a touch of humour, the title hides an exhibition of sculptures and installations that plunge us into the universe of Chinese restaurants, karaoke bars, opium smoke shops, curiosity shops. The artist thus tackles the burning subjects of cultural diversity and “borrowing”. It also questions the perception of Chinese culture in the West, in this case in Quebec.
