To order a copy:
The PHI Foundation for Contemporary Art is pleased to launch a new publication that chronicles RELATIONS: Diaspora and Painting, an exhibition which explores the multiple and evolving meanings of diaspora, its condition, and its experiences as expressed through painting. This richly illustrated volume features installation views, reproductions and thoughtful essays written on each artist’s work. The book is co-published with Hirmer Publishers, based in Munich.
Please join us on Zoom for a presentation of the publication RELATIONS: Diaspora and Painting, with Cheryl Sim (Managing Director and Curator), Jon Knowles (Exhibitions and Publications Manager), and Léon Lo (Studio Feed), who will speak to the production of the book. Montreal-based artist Emily Jan will offer a reading of the foreword of the publication and we will also engage writers and artists who are present in an informal discussion on the journey to the realization of the texts.
