For Our Own Pleasure

by Laura U. Marks

Artforum, Sept 1994, v. 33

Laura U. Marks reviews "For Our Own Pleasure," an exhibition held at Toronto's YYZ gallery. The exhibition features artists from the Asian diaspora whose work engages with the ways in which Orientalism has framed and continues to frame Asian women's sexuality. The review weighs the relative merit of the individual works and the effectiveness of the exhibition as a whole.
