Creators: avery celeste creed, avery / a. c. c

The goal of this exhibition was to set up an engaging atmosphere that lent itself to the artist’s desire to find and cultivate relationships that occur between community and the game of mahjong. Researching play theory, immigration studies, and contemporary art practices, while also collaborating with Saskatoon-based artist Xiao Han, this thesis investigates play and community. How can play serve as a vehicle for community, how does community enable play, and what can this activate in public spaces such as art galleries?

Keywords: Play, Community, Mahjong, Culture, Engagement, Participation, COVID-19, Immigration Studies, Accessibility
