Tomoyo Yamada & Xinyue Liu

Xinyue Liu is a visual artist whose work takes form in film, photography, text, and installation. She completed her MFA at Simon Fraser University and holds a Bachelor’s degree in Radio and Television Productions from China. Often incorporating found objects and archival images, she is interested in exploring themes of family, nostalgia, and memory.

Tomoyo Yamada is an interdisciplinary artist whose primary media are dance and choreography. Born in Japan and educated in the United States, she has spent most of her life traveling between North America and Japan, negotiating distinct cultural identities. Her practice is influenced by her ongoing research into identity politics and her self-reflexive interrogation of transnational cultural difference.
