XING: Book Launch and Exhibition

XING is a domain of possibilities shedding light on the trailblazing lives of East and Southeast Asian women. XING champions the vagabonds, challenges hegemony, and celebrates a oneness through a union of imagery and prose. 

The first chapter of XING explores the realm of East Asian women in a photo book. Contributors include: Clara Lee, Elizabeth Gabrielle Lee, Jiatu Gu, Mayumi Hosokura, Ronan McKenzie, Ryo-ta Saitoh, Samantha Yap, Takuya Nagata, Tammy Volpe, Teresa Eng, Vivian Fu, and Lin Zhipeng. 

Celebrate the launch of the XING book in an evening showcase of the works from the book, and explore the XING archive together with a film by Aidan Zamiri.

XING is founded by Elizabeth Gabrielle Lee, a photographer based between London and Singapore.

She is interested in exploring new identities of subaltern bodies in her imagery—with a specific focus in carving a voice out for East and Southeast Asian women situated in this globalised world.
