You’re invited to a reception at the Dal Schindell Gallery on Wednesday, February 14, from 4 to 7 pm, for the opening of sik teng mm sik gong (pardon my chinese), featuring artwork by Gloria Wong. All are welcome.


This art exhibition consists of a series of large-format photographs that are part of an investigation into Hong Kong-Canadian diasporic identity and the ways that it manifests through familial relationships, domestic spaces, and objects. This work takes up aspects of the everyday to visualize the things “in between” that make up this identity: between care and neglect, sterility and warmth, belonging and alienation.


Gloria Wong (b. 1998) is a visual artist based in “Vancouver,” on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations. Her practice explores the complexities of diasporic identities and how they are shaped by different relationships—whether between people, environments, or objects. She is interested in the ways that identity and the self are negotiated through acts of care, memory, and gesture. Wong holds a BFA in Photography from Emily Carr University of Arts + Design (2020).

The Dal Schindell Gallery is located at Regent College, which sits on the traditional, ancestral, unceded territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) First Nation.

Dal Schindell Gallery, 5800 University Blvd, Vancouver, BC V6T 2E4
