GHOST IMAGE: A Close Reading of the Work of Ho Tam by Kegan McFadden
Thursday 27 June, 7:30PM
The Victoria Arts Council is excited to present a new iteration of this touring survey exhibition of work by contemporary artist, and former Victoria-resident, Ho Tam.
Cover to Cover offers a selection of photo, video, artist books, and magazines spanning this artist's career. The exhibition deconstructs Tam's recent book works displaying selected pages and images on the gallery walls connecting with earlier works and installed organically so the images exists as a free flowing collage. His long time investigation into place, memory, queerness, and the body is shown through works that blend together to create a larger installation engaging the breadth of Tam’s artistic production.
Special to this Victoria version of Cover to Cover is a selection of work produced by Ho Tam during his residency with the Canadian Forces Artists Program (CFAP), an opportunity that allowed him to travel on a Navy ship for ten days, from Pearl Harbor, Hawaii to Esquimalt, BC.
