YORKTON - An artist reception for the latest show at the Godfrey Dean Gallery was held Saturday in Yorkton.
The show, hanging until Oct. 22, features Vancouver-based artist Ho Tam’s photography, design, and book making art practice.
The exhibition is a major installation featuring hundreds of images, photographs, prints, design elements, and texts which explore topics of identity, history, culture, and social justice.
“The exhibition at Yorkton consists of about ten sets of work, from photography to print works. Almost all of them are related to my publications from the past ten years,” Ho Tam told Yorkton This Week in a previous interview. “. . . The exhibition ends up not being so much an installation in that sense - it is composed of many sets of work that I have made in the last ten years. I guess my idea for this exhibition is to revisit many different stages and aspects of my life. Mainly they seem to relate to my bookwork overall.”
The works were created in the last 10 years.
Ho Tam, who was in attendance Saturday was born in Hong Kong when it was a British colony, but moved to Toronto with his family in his teen years.
