Divine Threads: The Visual and Material Culture of Cantonese Opera
Divine Threads examines the high stakes surrounding Cantonese opera heritage today, especially in regard to historic collections housed in museums around the world. Today, one of the most complete and well-preserved collections of early Cantonese opera, including some 800 objects, is held at MOA. Divine Threads shines a light on the visual and material culture of Cantonese opera as a treasure trove of sacred and auspicious images, stories, songs, and rituals. In tracing these connections, author April Liu analyzes the politics of memory surrounding historic opera troupes and the material traces they left behind.
People Among the People: The Public Art of Susan Point
Robert D. Watt
The stunning book celebrates the public art of one of Canada’s most accomplished artists and designers. People Among the People beautifully displays the breadth and depth of Susan Point’s public art—from cast bronze faces in Whistler to massive carved cedar portals in Stanley Park to moulded polymer murals in Seattle. Through interviews and archival access, Robert D. Watt gathers the stories of Point’s public art, often in Point’s own words, to illustrate the vital role she has played in revealing and re-establishing the “Salish footprint” in the Pacific Northwest.
