Reassurance was a touring exhibition curated by Yeu-Lai Mo with assistance from the BBC London Roots Initiative and the Film and Video Umbrella. It featured four UK based female artists of Chinese heritage: Susan Pui San Lok, Erika Tan, Mayling To and Jen Wu.

The exhibition reflected upon the curator's own experiences as an artist proposing an alternative, and more critically and culturally engaged, curatorial approach to presenting work by artist of Chinese heritage. It examined the relationship between the curator and the artist and bring attention to the the balance between the comfort of belonging to a group and the need for individuality.The curatorial process was central to the exhibition: how curators will construct an argument, often following a specific agenda and personal investment.

The exhibition was first shown at SPACE gallery in London before moving to the Centre in July 2005.
