Curator: Janet Lumb
presented as part of Festival Accès Asie 2004
Meeting the challenges of Canada’s vast geography, this project was initiated to encourage Asian Canadian artists to make art using the Internet. For this 6th annual exploration, it will be an honour to witness the creative exchange between versatile and unpredictable visual artist Kakim Goh in Montreal and multi-instrumentalist, musician and film composer Donald Quan in Toronto. With time delays in a bizarre virtual space, this ambitious project is broadcast live in Montreal and Toronto.
Born in Toronto, Janet Lumb lived in Vancouver before settling down twenty years ago in Montreal. She worked with delinquents and autistic children while developing into a seasoned saxophonist and film music composer. Since 1997, she has also been the director of Festival Accès Asie, which promotes the intercultural exchange and richness of Canadian Asian artists. Above all, her goal is to create a sense of family and communal spirits within the community.
