In an era of heightened animosity towards immigrants and the rise in anti-Asian hate crimes, artist Chrystal Phan’s solo exhibition is a timely debut. Featuring large-scale oil paintings of Vietnamese Canadian life, this show is the first of its kind to explore humour in the Vietnamese Canadian immigration experience as a way to combat negative stereotypes and bring Canadians together through the awkward experience of finding one’s place in unfamiliar territory.
The show runs from January 21st to February 6, 2022.
Gallery hours are Fridays and Saturdays 12-4pm, and Sundays 12-3pm.
