Imaging The Asia-Pacific Photo Exhibit has now been moved to the Richard Charles Lee Canada-Hong Kong Library, where the photo exhibit will be on display from October 24 to November 20, 2018.

In 2012-2013 the Dr. David Chu Program in Asia-Pacific Studies at the Asian Institute envisioned a photo contest on the theme of “Imaging the Asia-Pacific,” and has presented it annually ever since. Open to all students at the University of Toronto, the contest has asked students to submit photographic representations of East Asia, Southeast Asia, and the Pacific. The photos may have been taken in any location inside or outside the region (including Toronto), but they are expected to be of high artistic quality and to offer images that go beyond clichés. Not only has the contest helped to make students aware of learning opportunities in the Chu Program and the Asian Institute; it also encourages them to consider the possibilities of interdisciplinary and multimedia approaches to the study of the Asia-Pacific. This exhibit is made up of only a small sampling of some of the most unique, beautiful and thought-provoking works the contest has received over the years.

We invite viewers to contemplate the photos, to appreciate the artistic and intellectual talent on display, and to join us in imagining the region, its pasts, and its futures through the medium of photography.
