Yuluo Wei 韦雨落 moved to Toronto with an economics and business background and graduated from the Curatorial Studies master’s program at the University of Toronto. As a young newcomer, she believes art is a transformative medium central to human connection and belonging. As a Chinese woman determined to become an art curator, she is cognizant of cultural sensitivities and strives to refine and reflect on the influential nature of her role in exhibition and programming making.
In her research and projects, Yuluo is interested in overlooked narratives embedded within cultural myths, imaginaries, and ideologies in a cross-cultural context, with a particular focus on the Asian diaspora. On account of her experience, she uses curating as an experimental approach to unconventional art environments and is especially driven to curate projects promoting emerging, and/or underrepresented artists.
Her recent independent curatorial projects include thesis project “If a Turtle Could Talk” (Art Museum at the University of Toronto, 2020), “One through the Other” (San Sheng Art Space, 2022), “Breath of Origin” (Industrial Arts, 2023), and “Kejie Lin: The Mind’s Garden” (Newcastle Contemporary Art, 2023).
*In case you were wondering: Yuluo means “rains fall” in Chinese.
