Richmond Manifests: Self & City
Julie Hammond and Martin Riesle
Richmond Public Library, Brighouse Branch
Richmond Manifests: Self & City was created by Julie Hammond and Martin Riesle as part of Minoru Manifesto, an artist residency at Minoru Chapel and City Centre Community Centre in 2019. Through a series of events and workshops, artist Julie Hammond explored the concept of a “manifest” – a list of goods carried in cargo, and a “manifesto” – a public declaration of belief. Participants contributed individual “manifests” declaring what they possess on their person (as shown on the left of the scroll), and what they collectively possess in the city (as shown on the right). The lists were gathered from community participants over five months and then transcribed verbatim and hand-lettered by Martin Riesle onto a 1 x 10 metre calligraphic scroll. Richmond Manifests: Self & City is on display at the Richmond Public Library, Brighouse Branch, 7700 Minoru Gate, until April 2020. Minoru Manifesto was presented as part of the 2019 Engaging Artists in Community Program.

“what are the stories we want to tell future generations?”
No. 3 Road Art Columns
A new exhibition of artworks by three Richmond-based artists is on display for six months on the No. 3 Road Art Columns located at Aberdeen and Lansdowne Canada Line Stations. For this exhibition, artists Jeni Chen, Paige Gratland and Megan Yung explored the question, “what are the stories we want to tell future generations?” resulting in works that reference inclusion of LGBTQ2S communities, cultural diversity and Richmond’s unique natural heritage.
The works are presented by the Richmond Public Art Program to showcase local visual artists and their artwork in outdoor public spaces. The series – presented in the large, backlit display cases at the base of three concrete columns supporting the Canada Line guide-way – are part of the City’s commitment to enhance the No. 3 Road streetscape, in partnership with InTransit BC. This is the second of a two-part year-long exhibition; the first exhibition presented artwork by artists Nadia Mahamoor, Ming Yeung and Valerie D. Walker.
