In this AGAlive, aiya哎呀 discuss the shifting borders of Chinatown in Edmonton and their upcoming work in borderLINE: the 2020 Biennial of Contemporary Art, presented by ATB Financial at your AGA. This conversation takes place in many locations that are relevant to their work; the former site of the Chinatown gate in Edmonton, the LRT, the outdoor storage where the gate sits dismantled, the location slated for the construction of a new Chinatown gate, and the AGA. By visiting all of these locations during their discussion, the artists Grace Law and Shawn Tse with curator Lindsey Sharman unpack the complexities of their practice.

Premieres on our YouTube channel on Wednesday, August 5 at noon MST. Subscribe to get notified when we go live here.

borderLINE: the 2020 Biennial of Contemporary Art opens at the AGA and Remai Modern on September 26.


Lindsey V. Sharman is Curator of the Art Gallery of Alberta. She has studied Art History and Curating in Canada, England, Switzerland and Austria, earning degrees from the University of Saskatchewan and the University of the Arts, Zurich.
