LAB 7.3: Pagoda Pads, Karen Tam

November 23, 2007 - November 23, 2007

Montreal-based artist Karen Tam works with the Asian collection at the Art Gallery to address themes of cultural identity, communication, and memory in her ongoing exploration of the history of the North American Chinese experience. Through entities such as the Chinese restaurant or novelty store, Tam?s work addresses the projection of ideas about China to Westerners.

To explore notions of authenticity Tam creates a modern-day opium den in The LAB that incorporates pieces from the Art Gallery?s collection of Chinese export art and porcelain.
