New Ho Queen: Undivided

New Ho Queen: Undivided

Thu April 25 to 26, 8:00 pm - 12:00 am

New Ho Queen is a Toronto-based collective bringing visibility, opportunity, and experiences to the queer Asian and POC community. Inspired by the exhibition Ai Weiwei: UnbrokenNew Ho Queen will curate an art party in partnership with the Gardiner that breaks down walls and boundaries, and, through the lens of queer Asian artists, explore how building bridges and fostering chosen families create subcultural spaces for expression and belonging.

About the exhibition

Ai Weiwei is one of the world’s most influential artists and human rights activists, as well as one of China’s most formidable critics. Known for smashing conventions—and ceramics—with iconic works like Dropping a Han Dynasty Urn, he upends the cultural traditions and materials of his native China.

This highly-anticipated and timely exhibition explores the breaking of boundaries, both physical and symbolic, and considers how the artist’s ceramic works form a basis for his ongoing exploration of urgent social justice themes, including immigration, freedom of speech, and the repression of dissent. Learn more
