Redeemer Art Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition by OCAD University Assistant Professor JJ Lee.

Through mixed media paintings and drawings, JJ Lee explores the “chop suey”, hyphenated culture that is created when East meets West through immigration and colonization. 

“ReOriented” is the centrepiece of the exhibition: a scroll extending over 60' of gallery space, engaging the 1000-year-old Chinese tradition of hand scrolls. The piece appropriates images of Chinese-Canadian food such as Sweet & Sour Chicken Balls, juxtaposing them with 'authentic' Chinese food such as road duck hanging in a window.

Exhibition continues through November 9th, 2018
Gallery Hours: Monday - Saturday, 9 am - 10 pm.
