Yuluo Wei 韦雨落 moved to Toronto with an economics and business background and recently 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 independent curator, she is cognizant of cultural sensitivities and strives to refine and reflect on the influential nature of her role in exhibition and programming creation.
In her research and projects, Yuluo aims to feature overlooked narratives embedded within cultural myths, imaginaries, and ideologies in a cross-cultural context. On account of her experience, she is interested in exploring structures and ecology in unconventional art environments and is committed to creating new forms of dissemination for young, emerging, and/or minority Ontario-based artists who encounter barriers against equitable presentation.
Her recent independent curatorial projects include “Weather Amnesia” (Jackman Humanities Institute, 2019/2020), thesis project “If a Turtle Could Talk” (Art Museum at the University of Toronto, 2020), and “One through the Other” (San Sheng Art Space, 2022). She was awarded fellowships and the Reesa Greenberg Curatorial Studies Award, annually conferred to the top-ranking student in the Curatorial Studies master’s program.
*In case you were wondering: Yuluo means “rains fall” in Chinese.
