Neighbourhood Walks: Chinatown with Florence Yee of TeaBase

Wednesday, October 14, 3 pm

Chinatowns all over Turtle Island were created out a need for survival during times of legislative racism in Canada. Today, they are still vital spaces for newcomers and second generation families to access cultural and linguistic services. The neighbourhood, like the rest of Toronto, is a contested space, experiencing rapid gentrification. How are we responding? What do we stand to lose? Join us for this virtual neighbourhood walk lead by TeaBase member Florence Yee

Florence Yee is a Cantonese-struggling visual artist based in Tkaronto/Toronto and Tiohtià:ke/Montreal. Their interest in Cantonese-Canadian history has informed an art practice examining diasporic subjectivities through the lens of gender, racialization, queerness and language. Notable exhibitions include the Art Gallery of Ontario (2020),
the Gardiner Museum (2019), Centre A (2019), A Space (2019), Art Mûr (2018), and the Karsh-Masson Gallery (2017). Along with Mattia Zylak, Yee co-founded The Institute of Institutional Critique™ in 2019. They are currently the Co-Director of Tea Base, a grassroots collective in Tkaronto’s Chinatown run by queer East and Southeast-Asians. They obtained a BFA from Concordia University and an MFA from OCAD U. They are represented by Studio Sixty-Six.
