  NOT OVER: 25 Years of Visual AIDS , 2013, curated by Sur Rodney (Sur) and Kris Nuzzi for Visual AIDS.

  DON'T WORRY WHAT HAPPENS HAPPENS MOSTLY WITHOUT YOU , 2012, Radiator Gallery, curated by Kris Nuzzi, an exhibition that explores the personal identities of artists Jeanie Choi, Camilo Godoy, Ted Kerr, James Richards, Aldrin Valdez and Sam Vernon, as they navigate through a world shaped by experiences of marginalization, silencing and difference. Whether speaking from their own life, recreating a historical memory or representing an underrepresented community, their work explores poetic and subtle ways to communicate issues of immigration, race, queerness and desire. Together they reveal the connections and differences between these loaded social issues and invite the viewer to share in their intimate experiences. INFO

  WHERE ARE WE FROM?  , 2009, Curated by Gabe Wong at The Artery. My contribution was this poster, which included the quote: “The twentieth century will be remembered chiefly, not as an age of political conflicts and technical inventions, but as an age in which human society dared to think of the health of the whole human race as a practical objective.”―Arnold Toynbee

  EDMONTON: EXPLORED , 2008, Curated by Amy Fung for the Art Gallery of Alberta. In the exhibition that looked at life in Edmonton I had a work called, "Towards Seeing Everything."
