The final Artist Salon session of 2021 features an in-person presentation by Nanaimo Art Gallery curator, Jesse Birch who will share his curatorial practice as it has evolved in the Vancouver Island community of Nanaimo, BC, situated on the traditional and unceded territory of the Snuneymuxw people.
Birch states, “In my practice as a curator, I am deeply committed to context responsive work, which involves engaging with under-recognized sites and histories, empowering those whose stories are often not heard, and celebrating diverse forms of expression.” As such, Birch’s practice is highly collaborative, working with colleagues, artists and community members to develop thematic exhibitions that are at once engaging in critical discourse and accessibility. Birch will discuss projects developed at Nanaimo Art Gallery in the past seven years and will highlight the practices of artists who celebrate the local in their work.
Artists, writers, curators and administrators will benefit from the group discussion with Birch that will follow his presentation. This session is ideal for those interested in hearing how gallery exhibitions are formulated with curators, artists and the community, as well as providing some examples of how artists develop art projects that engage in contemporary art issues and topics in a specific community.
This event will be an in-person illustrated talk followed by Q+A session hosted in the Richmond Art Gallery.
All visitors and staff are required to wear masks at all times while inside the Cultural Centre and Art Gallery.
