Professor Alice Ming Wai Jim is presenting the 2024 Goldfarb Lecture in Visual Arts, part of the Annual Goldfarb Summer Institute at York University - Detour and Access: Contemporary Diasporic Asian Art. Dr. Jim will examine exhibitions of work by Asian Canadian artists in relation to the political, cultural, and community activism that led to last year's national remembrance ceremony held in the Senate of Canada Chamber to mark the centenary of the racist 1923 Chinese Exclusion Act. Jim will reflect on curatorial research and praxis as activism, its relation to decolonial curating and worldmaking, and the concept of "Asian Canadian" as an ongoing and capacious political project.

Join the lecture.
