We are pleased to announce our latest installment of CAG Reads, a book club where artists invite us to read alongside them. Each month an artist proposes text for our collective reading pleasure, culminating in a virtual hangout where the artist leads a wide-ranging discussion grounded in their chosen reading material. This month, CAG Reads will be hosted by Qian Cheng. Qian has chosen to read Grandma’s Story by Trinh T. Minh-ha.

Qian Cheng is an artist interested in collaborative artistic interventions that provide generative solutions and perspectives. Cheng’s work is guided by her lived experience as a first-generation Chinese Canadian, exploring the threshold between art and life while building artistic agency and self-determination.

Access to Grandma’s Story by Trinh T. Minh-ha will be provided upon registration.
