Jasmine Liaw

Interdisciplinary Artist

Jasmine Liaw is a queer emerging Chinese-Canadian interdisciplinary artist in dance performance, new media art, and film. Bicoastal, she lives and works in so-called Toronto and Vancouver. Within her practice, she hopes to expand her knowledge in documenting movement, and experiment with the human body as a vessel for versatile art forms. As an emerging artist, Jasmine is compelled to explore her contemporary views of Asian diaspora. In 2020, she graduated with Distinction at the Conteur Academy in Toronto, under the artistic direction of Eryn Waltman. Her film work has been screened with Rumble Theatre (Canada), Festival del Cinema di Cefalù (Italy), Golden FEMI Film Festival (Bulgaria), Dawson City International Film Festival (Canada), the F-O-R-M Festival of Recorded Movement in Vancouver (Canada), NewFest (Canada), Aeris Körper’s PROSPECTS (Canada), and The Holy Art Gallery (UK). Gallery and publication works include Florence Contemporary Gallery (Italy), Visual Arts Mississauga (Canada), Fragmented Magazine (USA), and Quarantine Qapsule partnered with Emily Carr University Library, Lonely Artists Productions, and Myseum of Toronto (Canada). This year, she is a 2022 ArtworkxTO Spotlight Artist and a conference panelist University of the Arts London and OCAD University’s “Outside In” presentation.
