Museum Bhavan | ISF 2018 Artist
A Vancouver based interdisciplinary artist and curator, Yao graduated from the University of British Columbia with a BA in Philosophy and a BFA in photography from Emily Carr. Yao explores contemporary social conditions through a lens-based media practice. Her studio and curatorial works interrogate the relationship between commerce and contemporary culture while highlighting the oddities of image consumption.
Location: Pulp Fiction Books, 2422 Main St, Vancouver, BC V5T 3E2
Reason: Yao selected Pulp Fiction to display her book because “every book can be considered a museum and at Pulp Fiction, Dayanita’s Museum Bhavan can unfold to expecting and unintended visitors.”
