John Wee Tom


John Wee Tom is an entrepreneur, collector and independent curator based in Toronto, Canada.

With a deep interest in visual culture, John’s aesthetic, collecting and curatorial sensibility takes on a wunderkammer aspect, with subjects as far-ranging as prehistoric fossils, Greco-Roman and Japanese antiques, piece de maitrise architectural models and contemporary art.

John was the instigator and co-curator of This is Not a Toy, the much-acclaimed exhibition of designer toys which took place at Toronto’s Design Exchange Museum, which featured guest curator Pharrell Williams and pieces from his collection. John also co-edited the exhibition’s accompanying catalogue.
