Led by artists PUFF Paddy & Meegan Lim, and in partnership with Chinatown BIA, Yue Moon 完滿: Tiger With Wings 如虎添翼 brings people together for a luminous experience. Featuring over 180 community-created artworks, the vibrant palace lanterns provide an escape from the darkness and cold of winter in a public art exhibit animating the streets of Toronto’s Chinatown through February 28, 2022.
Yue Moon 完滿: Tiger With Wings 如虎添翼 is produced in partnership with Toronto Chinatown BIA. It is also supported by Chinese Gospel Church Toronto, OCAD University’s RBC Centre for Emerging Artists & Designers, Cecil Community Centre, and Ontario Arts Council. This project is also part of the DesignTO Festival forming Toronto’s design week, January 21-30, 2022.
完滿 (Yue Moon), meaning full circle, completion, full moon, is a community-based, multimedia public art program as part of Toronto Chinatown’s Lunar New Year celebrations since 2020. In its third iteration, Yue Moon celebrated the Lunar New Year through arts workshops that culminated in a gallery showcasing images of Chinatown’s histories, memories and intentions for the new year.
“My child and I are both born in the Year of the Tiger, so it’s a bonus to participate in this wonderful community arts experience – one that connects us with others, and with our culture as Chinese Canadians.”
