On this episode of the Portland Art Museum Podcast, we present the audio interview of Henry Tsang, edited only for pauses in the conversation and chatter between Henry and the interviewer. The other voice you will hear is Grace Kook-Anderson, the Arlene and Harold Schnitzer of Northwest Art and curator of “the map is not the territory.”

Henry Tsang
(b. 1964 in Hong Kong; lives in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada)
Henry Tsang is a visual and media artist whose work has been exhibited internationally. His artworks incorporate digital media, video, photography, language and sculptural elements that follow the relationship between the public, community and identity through global flows of people, culture, and capital.
