New Ho Queen is a Toronto-based collective bringing visibility and expressive spaces to the queer Asian and QTBIPOC community. Inspired by the exhibition Ai Weiwei: Unbroken, New Ho Queen will curate an art party in partnership with the Gardiner that breaks down walls and boundaries, and, through the lens of queer Asian artists, explore how building bridges and fostering chosen families create subcultural spaces for expression and belonging.
Curated by Ness Lee, queer Asian visual and performance artists will exhibit new works in the company of New Ho Queen resident DJs. Expect a vibrant and artistic evening in celebration of the queer Asian diaspora, with access to the exhibition Ai Weiwei: Unbroken.

About the exhibition
Ai Weiwei is one of the world’s most influential artists and human rights activists, as well as one of China’s most formidable critics. Known for smashing conventions—and ceramics—with iconic works like Dropping a Han Dynasty Urn, he upends the cultural traditions and materials of his native China.
This highly-anticipated and timely exhibition explores the breaking of boundaries, both physical and symbolic, and considers how the artist’s ceramic works form a basis for his ongoing exploration of urgent social justice themes, including immigration, freedom of speech, and the repression of dissent.
