As part of “Traversal” Residency Program, artist-in-resident Lorena Salomé will be in conversation with artist soJin Chun.
soJin Chun’s The Flux Cities project looks at the process of gentrification faced by Horto, a bicentennial community in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil that is a living museum. soJin has been working in this community to gather the living archives of Museum of Horto. In tandem, this project explores the changing landscapes of Regent Park, the oldest government housing development in Toronto, Canada.
soJin Chun is a Toronto-based artist interested in telling narratives that emerge in-between cultures in contemporary times. Through her art practice that includes art education, Chun collaborates with diverse communities in the process of storytelling.
Traversal is a series of artist residencies dedicated on providing Black, Indigenous, People of Colour (BIPOC) artists and designers with a research opportunity that is situated within both an academic setting and (Canadian) artist-run center. Traversal Residency is co-presented by the Public Visualization Lab and Trinity Square Video, and is supported by Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
