2. Chan Sheung Kee Book Co. Pavilion

The Chan Sheung Kee Book Company is located at 457 Dundas St. West in Toronto. They are open Monday through Saturday from 10:30 am to 8:00 pm, and Sundays from 10:30 am to 7:00 pm.

The Chinatown Biennial’s window installation can be viewed from street level outside business hours, but we encourage festival-goers to support the Chan Sheung Kee Book Company if they can.

Soft Copy

This project by Anne Chen was born out of her father’s request to catalog his Chinese art collection. Knowing little about Chinese art, she declined. As she mulled over the request, she wondered if her response came from insecurity researching art history or anxiety about detangling familial trauma. In the past year she has been making these hard things soft as a small collection of soft sculptures, reproductions of functional and decorative objects from her dad’s collection.
