Paul Wong, Debbie Cheung, and Christopher Lee

PAUL WONG, DEBBIE CHEUNG, and CHRISTOPHER LEE for Occupying Chinatown (On Main) Occupying Chinatown focuses on several of Wong’s major artworks exploring Chinese Canadian identity and his engagement with Vancouver’s Chinese communities. With full colour photos and documentation of Wong’s artwork as well as three original essays, Occupying Chinatown is an evocative exploration of language, amnesia, and cultural displacement, inspired by 900 letters sent to Suk-Fong Wong, Paul Wong’s mother, over the course of 65 years.
