The Chorus | A Panel Discussion
Saturday May 11 @ 2:00pm

YYZ is pleased to host a panel discussion between Toronto artists Yam Lau, Andy Patton, and Québec artist Jean-François Côté. The panel will discuss Côté’s The Chorus, a video installation currently on view at YYZ.

Shot in Beijing, China in 2010, The Chorus stages the performance of “Snow,” a popular Chinese song transcribed from Mao Zedong’s poem of the same title. In this work Côté explores the psychological and spiritual impact of China’s recent transformation on its citizens. The performance of a song that signals the revolutionary sentiment of a bygone era is intended to gauge and also reveal the affective responses of the singers in the present.

The panel will provide contextual information on the production of The Chorus and explore a number of relevant topics arising from the work.
