Beyond the Mask: Contemporary Canadian Art during Covid

Free with RSVP: Zoom Program

Join ROM’s Wen-chien Cheng and Fahmida Suleman in conversation with Ottawa-based artist Don Kwan to explore his use of mask forms as part of his contemporary practice. Kwan’s art reflects on anti-Asian racism and his experiences as a Chinese-Canadian, and now plays an important role as part of the ROM’s permanent collections.

Don Kwan's piece Veneration for Mom and Dad is now on display as part of the original exhibition Unmasking the Pandemic: From Personal Protection to Personal Expression
