EXHIBITION : Prameya Art Foundation presents 'Paul Wong: Private/Public/Lives"

‘Paul Wong: Private/Public/Lives’ is part of Prameya Art Foundation (PRAF) Participatory, an initiative that tries to explore collaborative art making as pedagogy. Paul Wong, the
Canadian multi-media artist and activist has been invited to India to conduct a workshop
and make work together with a group of young artists at Srishti Institute of Art Design and
Technology. The exhibition ‘Paul Wong: Private/Public/Lives’ is a preview to this project, and
to introduce Paul Wong to the community of students and young artists in Delhi. He has
been creating daring work for over 40 years, pushing the boundaries of conventional
cultural stereotypes and art. He has produced large-scale interdisciplinary artworks in
traditional galleries and unexpected public spaces since the 1970s. His work subverts
stereotypes in form, language, content, and context.
This exhibition of three recent works exemplifies Paul’s multifaceted artistic process.
All these works have been initiatives of public art projects, accessibly bringing in the public
and community within the conversation by taking what is typically concealed in private
spaces out into the public to start a conversation around it. Five Octave Range (2017),
commissioned by Vancouver Opera, and Year of GIF (2013), commissioned by Surrey Art
Gallery, showcases Paul’s large-scale site-specific installation video work that has made him a pioneer in that field. His current project, 身在唐人街 / Occupying Chinatown (2018/19),
commissioned by City of Vancouver’s explores Paul’s relationship to identity, heritage, and
language. 媽媽的藥櫃/Mother’s Cupboard and 父字/Father’s Words allows viewers
intimate insight into Chinese diaspora practices within a Canadian colonial context. The
project at Srishti Institute of Art and design will be an extension of this project in the Indian context.
