GHY Cheung

2019 Nan Yeomans Grant Recipient

The Nan Yeomans Grant supported GHY Cheung’s project in Hong Kong—a love letter in the form of several interventions that take their cue from “Friendship as a Way of Life.” This series is part of a larger exploration of intimacies formed in displacement (temporary travel, permanent migration) and relationships sustained over long distances as potential sites of queer world-making. - Kingston Arts Council
