Harmonious Interest: A Celebration of Victoria’s Chinese Heritage
This exhibition in the Maltwood Prints and Drawings Gallery at the McPherson Library (February 1 to May 13, 2013) contextualizes aspects of the history of the Chinese people who first came to this city in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Harmonious Interest draws on the archival and artistic holdings of the university with a selection of material from the Consolidated Chinese Benevolent Association.
Robert Amos’ Chinatown collages and artifacts from the Consolidated Chinese Benevolent Association Fonds held by UVic Archives show the historical roles of key organizations in community building and advocacy for Chinese people in Victoria. Visit http://uvac.uvic.ca/#section0-4 for more details.
The exhibition is part of the Victoria Symphony’s Chinatown Celebration. Event details at:
