Gu Xiong: The Unknown Remains
The Unknown Remains
August 24 – November 3 | Galleries A & B
Gu Xiong’s practice centers on the creation of a hybrid identity arising from the integration of different cultural origins and migrations. His work encompasses sociology, literature, geography, economics and politics, as well as the dynamics of globalization, through which he constitutes an amalgamation of multiple cultural histories and seeks to create an entirely new identity.
Touchstones was awarded a substantial Concept to Realization Canada Council grant to support the research and creation of this project. A publication will also be produced as part of this project with writing contribution from Gu Xiong, Andrew Hunter and Arin Fay.
