Details

On Suday, November 9 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m., David Mirvish Books will host a launch and signing of painter Jinny Yu's first catalogue, which is published this fall by University of Ottawa Press in conjunction with Yu's gallery.

An exhibit of Yu's work will be on display at David Mirvish Books from October 15 to November 23.

The paintings on view are from a new series of works entitled, Story of a Global Nomad. They explore and echo Yu's understanding of the artist as migratory, having the ability to move between boundaries, contexts and identities.

The book, Jinny Yu, covers the past ten years and features three essays that explore and contextualize her work.

A native of Seoul, South Korea, Jinny Yu moved to Montreal in 1988. She is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Art at the University of Ottawa. Her works have been shown in exhibitions across Canada, as well as the United States, Japan, Italy and the United Kingdom.

This exhibition is being held in conjunction with the publication of Jinny Yu from the University of Ottawa Press and Art Mûr Gallery, Montreal.
