Join TD Assistant Curator of Engagement, Jas Lally for a series of Tuesday Lunch Time tours of Family Album, Capture Photography Festival’s 2022 Featured Exhibition.
Lally will discuss the meaning and weight held by family histories and the ways in which photography is used to understand and unpack these generational narratives, hopes and traumas as demonstrated by the artists in the exhibition.
This exhibition includes artists that use their practice as a tool through which to expand, explore, and consider their relationship to their family and heritage. Sometimes they redeploy existing family photographs to create something entirely new, some photograph their families directly capturing the intimacy and shared space they inhabit, others capture sites that are significant to their family history, and some artists stage and recreate scenes of familial weight.Featuring works by Rydel Cerezo, Anique Jordan, Anna Kasko, Meryl McMaster, Cheryl Mukherji, Dainesha Nugent-Palache, Birthe Piontek and Sylvia Rossi.
Family Album is organized by Capture Photography Festival, presented by TD Bank Group and generously supported by the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association.
