Oxygen Art Centre is preparing to open the upcoming exhibition entitled How to Be 57 featuring an installation of drawings by artist Lucie Chan from 3 September to 1 October 2022.
Prior to the exhibition, Chan is artist-in-residence from 3 – 27 August 2022. During her residency, Chan is hoping to meet with community members to discuss experiences of racialized violence in the West Kootenay region.
The discussions will take place at Oxygen Art Centre from 15 – 19 August 2022 from 1 – 3 PM and will contribute to Chan’s artistic practice and research on the topic. Interviews will be informal. Participants can expect to chat, draw, and spend up to an hour with the artist.
Note: The artist has asked that all visitors wear a mask during their time at Oxygen/ Outdoor interviews can also be arranged.
Interested volunteers are invited to contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Please share this notice with anyone you think might be interested.
