Events | Artist Talk | Resonant Presence and Refusals

July 17, 2018 – 7pm

Resonant Presence and Refusals
Jeneen Frei Njootli, Ayumi Goto, Peter Morin and Olivia Whetung
Tuesday, July 17, 7pm

Join us as four artists reflect together on the many shared concerns of their practices, with the discussion moderated by CAG Curator Kimberly Phillips and Vancouver Art Gallery’s Senior Curatorial Fellow of Indigenous Art, Tarah Hogue.

A collaboration between the Contemporary Art Gallery and the Vancouver Art Gallery, this event seeks to register and draw out issues of hospitality, presence and the politics of refusal on the occasion of these artists’ concurrent and upcoming exhibitions in Vancouver.
