The Chinatown Biennial is part actual biennial, part parody. We aim to highlight the complexity of narratives that coexist within and around ethnic enclaves, past essentialist, colonial, gentrifying, and (self)-Orientalist notions of what art in Chinatowns must look like. Please visit our website for full details about our intentions and values prior to applying.
Though founded by Mississauga and Toronto-based artists Arezu Salamzadeh and Florence Yee, the Chinatown Biennial exists in digital space and across Chinatowns, ethnic enclaves, homes, malls, alleys, expropriated land, places of solidarity, and more throughout the world.
