May 20 - June 5, 2004.
Meta-Culture: 21st Century Constructions was a series of Asian Heritage Month events at the Roundhouse. This included a visual art exhibition and video screenings selected by Amir Ali Alibhai and Paul Wong. Poupak Mohebbi was the constructor of the Dance and Music performances.
This exhibition showcased the diverse works of 15 “hybrid” artists who make Canada home. It featured painting, photography, sculpture, mixed-media constructions, banners, and ceramics. The group show included investigations by mature artists and explorations by an emerging generation of creative minds reflecting on the effects of rapid globalization and the interaction and influences of a plurality of cultural perspectives. The artists used abstraction, realism, poetic license, advertising and consumer camcorders to produce evocative works about shifting traditions, creative freedom, ethnicity, and otherness. Artists included: Maya Ersan, Riyadh Hashim, Farheen Haq, Sherazad Jamal, Shakun Jhangiani, Yasmin Karim, Huen Man-Kwong, Edgardo Lantin, Jean Lee, Youngsin Lee, Yun Lam Li, Maria Lobo, Farida Mawji, Tallulah, and Su-An Yun.
