Jan Wade is a Vancouver-based artist originally from Hamilton, Ontario. Wade's work deploys the materials and symbols of the everyday to explore issues of post-colonial identity, ethnicity and spirituality. Drawing creative resources from her own cultural history, Wade's examination of New World black diaspora reflects upon the relations between past and present, self and collectivity, and brings voice to the staunchly political nature of those encounters. Wade’s work focuses on altars as vehicles of worship and memory, as vessels for African spirituality and to reconcile the painful past of the African Diaspora.

Based in Vancouver, Nhan Nguyen works across media finding many of his inspiration in Vietnamese stories and traditions anchored particularly, in personal narratives related to him through his mother and her friends. Nguyen recent process-based installations pursue the themes of community, national history, cultural identity and community. Born in Qui Nhon, Vietnam in 1967 he immigrated to Canada when he was 12.
