Download CV

Sami Tsang (b. 1997 Windsor, Ontario, Canada) uses clay, rice paper, and drawing to materialize internal questions and traumas. Weaving together domestic and psychological narratives related to the conservatism of her youth, Tsang references Chinese proverbs and uses humour, distortion, and whimsy. These stories are not presented didactically, but through a fantastical visual language that combines memories, internal dialogues, folklore and imagined futures.

Tsang earned her MFA at Alfred University, New York, and was the 2019 recipient of the Gardiner Museum Prize. She has since exhibited internationally at galleries and museums such as Cooper Cole, Toronto (2022); Art Gallery of Burlington, Burlington (2022); Tandem Gallery, Bakersville (2022); the Gardiner Museum, Toronto (2021) and Charlie Cummings Gallery, Gainesville (2021). Tsang currently lives and works in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
