November 27
Artist Salon with Curator Jesse Birch
Richmond Art Gallery
7700 Minoru Gate
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.
