Jasmine Liaw is a queer emerging Chinese-Canadian interdisciplinary artist in dance performance, new media art, and film. Bicoastal, she is based in so-called Toronto and Vancouver.

Her practice focuses on the interconnections of conceptual realms of dance and digital/new media landscapes. As an emerging artist, Jasmine is compelled to explore her contemporary views of Asian diaspora. She is the Artistic Associate of Chimerik 似不像 Collective, working in interdisciplinary research and creation, and a member of Shoes Off Collective, an emerging artist community centred within the Asian Diaspora.

In 2020, she graduated with Distinction at the Conteur Academy in Toronto, under the artistic direction of Eryn Waltman.

Her work has been presented and commissioned across so-called Canada and internationally, and often integrates her original choreography, performance, film direction, projection design, editing, installation design, photography @shotlucid, multi-media printmaking, and poetry.

Her recent collaborations and presentations include RT Collective Commission Film Program in partnership with Toronto Dance Theatre, in conjunction with Chimerik's project "Ritual Spective,” Frog in Hand's Full Body Exhibit, adelheid dance projects (dance/motion capture, production), Chimerik/Theatre Passe Muraille: Digital Creators Lab (VJ/projection design), Gallery TPW's The Parkettes Projects with Ronnie Clarke (dance), Rumble Theatre (video installation), Dawson City International Film Festival (outdoor film projection), Florence Contemporary Art Gallery, Italy (video stills & interview), The Holy Art Gallery, UK (virtual art gallery finalist), IGNITE Youth Festival Short Films at the Cultch (short film), NextFest Edmonton (short film), Green Mountain Film Festival, USA (short film), Festival del Cinema di Cefalù, Italy (short film), The Garage (short film), Chimerik/Aeris Körper with the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre (projection design), and Quarantine Qapsule partnered with Emily Carr University Library, Lonely Artists Productions, and Myseum of Toronto (multi-media printmaking).
