Appreciating IBPOC visual cultures with IPA
One of IPA’s goals is to promote understanding between cultures in Vancouver. Currently many artists of diverse origin are on show in Vancouver. You are invited to join a relevant art tour if it interests you. The tours will be led by UCV’s Gerta Moray, an art historian who will provide information and facilitate discussion. You can join us at any point on a tour that suits you. RSVP if you plan to come.
Saturday February 25 – DIASPORIC VISIONS
12:00 pm Meet at The Libby Leshgold Gallery located in the Emily Carr University of Art + Design, 520 East 1st Avenue [https://libby.ecuad.ca/exhibitions/2023/jagdeep-raina-everything-left-unsaid.html] We shall visit everything left unsaid, a solo exhibition of work by Jagdeep Raina, who “has worked with personal, civic, and institutional archives and has parsed through photographic, oral, and written histories in order to create a more complex understanding of communities formed as a result of transnational migration—memories, photographs, and retellings from the past are re-animated and histories transformed into narratives unfurling in the present.”
At 1:00 pm proceed to Burrard Arts Foundation, #2—258 East 1st Ave
[https://burrardarts.org/exhibitions] to see two shows – Land & Marks by interdisciplinary artist Minahil Bukhari, who “explores concepts of displacement, trauma, loss and systematic infractions through the lens of political minimalism,” and Minding my business, Spirit’s in place, by painter and illustrator Odera Igbokwe, who “is known for their grand representations of Afro-diasporic mythologies—for dramatic, otherworldly settings with a centralized figure, often combining elements of fantasy, science fiction and supernatural belief.”
Come and explore how the visual arts give insight to shared human experience in our age of migration.
