Siheng Wang, The Instructor May Want to…2022

Navigating Belonging: Understanding Place and Positionality

Artists: Angie Ma, Vicky Talwar, Siheng Wang
Curator: Ella Taylor
Location: 113Research Project/Gallery, OCAD University, 113McCaul Street, 5th Floor Hallway.
Opens: May 11, 2-3.30 PM and runs until Sept 2022.

Drawing on shared experience, artists Angie Ma, Vicky Talwar, and Siheng Wang in Navigating Belonging explore the complexities of racialized cultural identity through self-reflective creative practices. The individual works present a narrative viewing of the artists’ past and present experiences relating to immigration, belonging, and identity. Viewed dialogically, these artworks offer a framework for engaging with the entangled layers of cultural identity and intercultural relations.

Also, as art educators, the artists consider how the application of creative storytelling in learning contexts can reveal and support the diverse experiences of students. Their uniquely critical and creative approaches can assist their students in acquiring deeper understandings of the complexities of their cultural identities.

Navigating Belonging then becomes a representation of artistic process and acts as a visual manifestation of how art educators can contend with these “troubling issues” in pedagogy.

The exhibition encourages viewers to consider how creative storytelling can facilitate a critical reflection of subject positions and how this reflection may inform or change how we think about identity.
