Florence Yee

Florence Yee is a 2.5 generation Cantonese-struggling visual artist based in Tkaronto/Toronto and Tiohtià:ke/Montreal. Her interest in Cantonese-Canadian history has fueled an art practice committed to dismantling institutional and casual ideals of Eurocentric hetero-patriarchy, as well as examining the daily life of her diaspora. Having graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Concordia University, she works with community groups for visual culture, such as Articule, La Centrale (both artist-run centers), and the Ethnocultural Art Histories Research group (EAHR). She has completed residencies at the Ottawa School of Art, the Concordia Fine Arts Reading Room, la Galerie du Nouvel-Ontario, as well as the John and Maggie Mitchell Art Gallery. She is now pursuing her MFA at OCAD U in Interdisciplinary Art, Media and Design. She is represented by Studio Sixty-Six.
