Chinese Housewives in Richmond
Chad Wong is currently completing his BFA in Visual Arts and Art History at the University of British Columbia. His work is primarily concerned with establishing a relationship between cultural identity and artistic identity through referring to his own personal life while alluding to aspects of art history. Utilizing both photography and video, Wong attempts to make sense of both the immigrant experience, as one that is linked to personal history, and the preservation of cultural traditions. He also wishes to express the struggles of being a child of an immigrant family that is trying to form its own identity.
