Ying Gao, from Montréal to the international stage

October 5, 2015

Ying Gao, recipient of the 2009 Phyllis Lambert Grant, has – pardon the pun – woven a brilliant career for herself, and continues to go from strength to strength. The UQAM design professor headed the Fashion, Jewelry and Accessories department of the Geneva University of Art and Design from 2013 to 2015.

In addition, she recently created the magnificent costumes for the play Peepshow, running until October 10 at Théâtre Espace GO.

Ying Gao is also showing her series Incertitudes (see video here) and (no)where (now)here (see video here) as part of the exhibition Utopian Bodies: Fashion Looks Forward at Liljevalchs Konsthall in Stockholm, Sweden, from September 25, 2015, to February 2, 2016.
