Henry Tsang¬†incorporates digital media, video, photography, language and sculptural elements in the exploration of the relationship between the public, community and identity in the new global order. His curatorial projects (Self Not Whole: Cultural Identity & Chinese-Canadian Artists in Vancouver, 1991; Racy Sexy: Race, Culture and Sexuality, 1993; and City at the End of Time: Hong Kong 1997, 1997) have spanned the local, national and international, encompassing diverse artistic and cultural practices.
