Cabinets as a political term originates from the name of a small and private room, and consequently adapted to describe an advice given in private to the monarchy in the late 16th century. Here we have an inverse where a cabinet is open to the public. Displayed is the integral part in the functioning of an establishment. Everyone is welcome, Food and beverages are provided.
Accompanying the Community Cabinet is a “cabinet meeting” where all students, staffs, and faculties are welcomed to a round table discussion on March 23rd, 2016. The meeting consists of no overarching agenda combating dominant ideologies that is enforced with the regulation of content allowed to circulate in a meeting space.
Community Cabinet is produced in collaboration with YiFan Jiang and on exhibition at Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver, Canada.
