Book here

In relation to her solo exhibition at Contemporary Art Gallery, artist Deanna Bowen contemplates the role of the photograph in her practice, excavating histories of Black experience in Canada and the US through the vehicle of her own family’s past. Reflecting specifically upon the new body of work that forms a focus of her exhibition, Bowen considers the simultaneous hypervisibility and invisibility of Black bodies in the archive, Vancouver’s particular performance of racism through class, and how her own work might offer a counterpoint to established forms of representation in Vancouver and their role in the continued erasure of Black presence from the city’s historical narratives.

Followed by the 2019 Festival Launch.

Presented in partnership with CAG.

The Capture Speaker Series is presented in partnership with Inform Interiors
