July 9th - August 15th
113 McCaul st Toronto
Xpace Cultural Centre: External Space
External Space’s current exhibition hosted by OCAD U’s Learning Zone is Byron Chan’s continuously looping video called 1997 which explores Hong Kong’s tenuous relationship with it’s past, present and future and the cumulative impact on this once culturally diverse territory.
Chan manipulates the found footage using digital tools, to erase the visual record of the people from 1960s Hong Kong, while maintaining a point of reference by retaining the image of one family, as they observe the changes.
On until August 15th at the Learning Zone, 113 McCaul Street Level 1
