    Hamilton Artists Inc: Tour China by Yam Lau
    Date: Sat. October 26, 2013 - Sat. February 22, 2014.
    Location: Hamilton Artists Inc (155 James St N) - Hamilton, Canada


    Installed on the exterior wall of the Hamilton Artists Inc.Tour China, a 36′ ‘travel poster’ by Yam Lau is a fictional enterprise that mimics the operation of a commercial travel agency. Adapting familiar promotional and operational elements of tourist travel to access and traverse factual and literal representations of China, the installation mines the past and present, real and imagined. Acknowledging China’s historical and contemporary realities this installation also recognizes China as a construct of poetic tropes and mythologies.
