Meet the Artist: Jaye Ho
7 November Free
2:00 pm – 3:30 pm
The Vanishing Act is ONCA first 2020 online exhibition with an accompanying window display. We invite you to join us online where we’ll be hosting a conversation with artist Jaye Ho, with BSL interpretation.
This brilliant exhibition includes a series of portraits of war criminals and piles of skulls from genocide victims. The Vanishing Act is a powerful body of work that addresses war crimes, focusing on the plight of ‘Comfort Women’ in Japanese-occupied WW2 countries and sexual violence survivors seeking justice.
