Panel Discussion: Work is All Over
Saturday, June 23, 3 pm, Access Gallery.
Join exhibiting artists Didier Courbot and Jamie Hilder, curator Gabrielle Moser and members of the Lower Mainland Painting Company as they discuss the political work that might be accomplished by art that engages with conditions of its own production. What kind of work is contemporary art expected to do in the current political climate? What happens when artists refuse or exceed these expectations? And, how can artistic labour be activated as a space for social critique and political action?
