9. Vancouver Pavilion

Love Intersections

In this installation, drag artist Maiden China performs an ancestral veneration ceremony at Vancouver’s Larwill Park, gathering site of the 1907 Anti-Oriental Chinatown (and Japantown) Riots as an exploration of temporality of anti-Asian racism in Canada. Giving offerings to our ancestors, making reference to the history of racism we are connected to; and recognizing the implications that these histories of Chinatown have on our own complicated identities today, as queer and racialized subjects.
