This event will feature remarks from The Honourable Dr. Vivienne Poy and will be moderated by CBC’s Gloria Macarenko.
Catherine Clement needs no introduction, she is the author and curator of Chinatown Through a Wide Lens: The Hidden Photographs of Yucho Chow, a photo exhibition showcased at the Chinese Cultural Centre in May 2019 in “before times”. She has now published a book on Yucho Chow, and how his photographs captured a generation characterized by resilience and hope.
Community curator Catherine Clement will explore how stories of migration have been rediscovered and brought back to life through objects found, yet forgotten, in our homes. Through her decade-long, ground-breaking work collecting the hidden photographs of Vancouver Chinatown’s first and most prolific photographer, Yucho Chow – to her current project locating surviving C.I. documents used to monitor, control and intimidate early Chinese in Canada – Catherine will show how each piece helps reveal a rich story.
