BRENDAN TANG REVIEWED IN THE GEORGIA STRAIGHT, 05.19
Robin Laurence writes of Tang’s most recent Manga Ormolu works:
“Tang’s work also speaks to the ways in which technology is increasingly wed to the human body—and vice versa. This is evident in the way he treats the surfaces of the vessels as if they were skin, folded and wrinkled around protruding or extruding robotic components.”

BRENDAN TANG EXHIBITED AT THE REACH GALLERY, 05.17
Work by Brendan Tang is featured in an upcoming exhibition Ready Player Two (May 25-September 3, 2017) at The Reach Gallery Museum in Abbotford, BC. The exhibition presents collaborative and independent works by Brendan Tang alongside interdisciplinary artist Sonny Assu, combining elements from science fiction, comic book, and gaming cultures to consider how the forms alternately reinforce and transcend racial boundaries in youth culture.
The Reach Gallery Museum describes the artistic interplay between the two artists in Ready Player Two as they address the activities of adolescence:
“In their individual practices, Tang and Assu frequently negotiate the material and conceptual dynamics of culture and ethnicity. Informed by their mixed-race backgrounds and experiences of Canadian life in the 1980s and 1990s, for this exhibition the artists bring together found objects, selections from previous bodies of work, and new collaborative pieces to create immersive spaces that evoke the adolescent sanctuaries of their time: the basement, the arcade, and the comic book store.”
