Months ago, unrelated to my duties here (yes, we do have lives outside of the festival), I was asked by ArtAsiaPacific magazine to review the Capture exhibition KIMSOOJA Unfolding at the Vancouver Art Gallery. The Hong Kong based publication was formed in 1993, and according to their website is “the leading English-language periodical covering contemporary art and culture from Asia, the Pacific and the Middle East”.
The review has now been posted on their website with a couple weeks to spare before the show closes. I’ll admit that I’m a little anxious about sharing it here (and claiming it as my own), but when it comes to Capture’s international press I definitely have a “more the merrier” mentality!
You can read it here. Hope you enjoy…
