Please join the Gallery for the opening of Retainers of Anarchy, a solo exhibition featuring new work from Howie Tsui that considers wuxia as a narrative tool for dissidence and resistance. Wuxia, a traditional form of martial arts literature that expanded into 20th-century popular film and television, was created out of narratives and characters often from lower social classes that uphold chivalric ideals against oppressive forces during unstable times. 

Retainers of Anarchy is collaboratively organized by the Vancouver Art Gallery, Art Gallery of Great Victoria and the Ottawa Art Gallery. The Art Gallery of Greater Victoria iteration curated by Michelle Jacques.
