Henry Tsang
Henry Tsang is a visual and media artist and curator based in Vancouver. His artworks incorporate digital media, video, photography, language, and sculptural elements that follow the relationship between the public, community, and identity through global flows of people, culture, and capital. His recent art projects include Maraya (2008–present), a collaboration with Glen Lowry and M. Simon Levin that investigates the reappearance of Vancouver’s False Creek in Dubai as the Dubai Marina; Orange County (2003¬–04), a video installation shot in Orange County, California and Beijing; and Olympus (2006), an interactive new media work that focuses on Torino and Vancouver. Both works explore the overlapping urban and sociopolitical spaces in each of the respective cities; and Welcome to the Land of Light (1997), a public artwork installed along Vancouver\'s sea wall that underscores Chinook Jargon, a nineteenth-century local trade language, and the English that replaced it. Tsang’s curatorial projects include Self Not Whole: Cultural Identity and Chinese-Canadian Artists in Vancouver (1991); Racy Sexy (1993); and City at the End of Time: Hong Kong 1997 (1997). He is also an associate professor at Emily Carr University of Art and Design.
