Project 40 Vlog Series: Museum Conversations
As part of the Monthly Takeover series of Project 40, a Toronto-based Asian Canadian Arts collective, Janice hosted Museum Conversations to explore topics on museums, galleries, and heritage sites in an Asian Canadian context.
Janice reflects on her journey in contact with Asian Canadian history in academic research, museum, and heritage work thus far.
Janice talks to Natalie - painter, print-maker, florist, budding modern and contemporary art specialist - in this episode about her experience and thoughts on being an Asian artist and curatorial staff in Canada, and simply, Asian Canadian.
Janice brings her audience to Richmond Museum's exhibition, Open for Business, where the curator of exhibition, Sheila Hill, shares with her her experience and insights on having a Canadian city museum in a immigrant-rich city.
The curator of exhibition from Richmond Museum, Sheila Hill, spoke with Janice again at the Steveston Museum and the Japanese Fishermen’s Benevolent Society.
