Yue Moon: A CreateSpace Artist Talk
Reel Asian is excited to partner with STEPS Public Art to present Yue Moon: a CreateSpace Artist Talk. This free artist talk will be hosted via Zoom and broadcasted on Facebook Live via @STEPSPublicArt. ASL interpretation, closed captioning, and English to Mandarin translation will be available throughout this event.
Led by artists PUFF Paddy and Winnie Truong, supported by the STEPS Initiative in partnership with the Chinatown BIA, Yue Moon brings people together for a luminous experience — an escape from the darkness and cold of winter through collaborative art-making culminating in a public exhibition animating the streets of Chinatown in February 2021 as part of Lunar New Year celebrations.
Building upon last year’s Yue Moon project, artists PUFF Paddy and Winnie Truong explored themes of cultural identity and community using new media, fabrication, and craft in the facilitation of virtual group workshops, resulting in the presentation of two unique, community co-created public artworks. To cap off the 2021 Lunar New Year Celebrations and another successful iteration of Yue Moon, artists PUFF Paddy and Winnie Truong, gather on Thursday, March 25, 2021 from 4:30-6pm EST for a virtual artist talk reflecting on recent projects, community identity and engagement during periods of isolation.
This workshop is offered as part of the 2021 CreateSpace BIPOC Public Art Residency. To learn more, visit www.publicartresidency.ca
