“Yang has always given weight to exhibitions. In particular, she regards those she generates for public institutions as a major driving force for the dissemination of her politics, aesthetic, and artwork.” — Lynne Cooke
Join artist Haegue Yang on the occasion of her recent solo exhibition Haegue Yang: Emergence at the Art Gallery of Ontario. This focused survey comprised of eighty-four artworks, including new commissions and large-scale installations, sculptures, two-dimensional works, and video essays created over the past twenty-five years.
During this talk, Yang will discuss her varied practice with a virtual exhibition tour. She will also introduce the brand-new catalogue Haegue Yang: Emergence, which contains essays that help contextualize Yang’s artistic career, and generate new understandings of her transformative contributions to the field of contemporary art.
