Dylan Goh is an artist-curator on unceded Bidjigal and Gadigal lands.
His practice (encompassing socially engaged initiatives, ceramics and installation) is grounded in holding agency over how cultural narratives are represented. Speaking to experiences as a 2nd generation Asian Australian caught between two worlds, Dylan leverages storytelling and participation to disarm audiences, engender empathy and transfer knowledge.
Selected projects include: 吃饭 (Chi Fan) (2021-22) - an online culinary database tracing intimate stories and migration of food recipes across the contested "Chinese diaspora"; Lunar Wishes (2021) - a collaborative mural inscribed with community messages of hope and yearning amidst global lockdowns and separated families; and #mealtimewithdilly (2020) - an online exhibition amplifying connections between food, memory and culture during the pandemic.
Dylan has 6 years’ experience in the creative industries across City of Sydney, Museum of Contemporary Art, UNSW Art & Design, Kil.n.it Experimental Ceramics Studio and 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art.
Currently, he is mentoring under Asian Arts curator Min-Jung Kim at the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences and exploring the role of intangible cultural heritage in cultural diplomacy as New Colombo Plan Fellow (Republic of Korea) for the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
