Waste of Space
April 8 to July 1, 2017
Waste of Space is an exhibition of zines made by artistic youth in our community. With this exhibition, Kamloops youth invite us to take a glimpse into their world. Using zines as their medium, they seek to challenge society’s critical view of youth and their artistic contributions—those who might view these as “silly little books made by teenagers,” and this exhibition as a Waste of Space—by encouraging us to instead recognize youth as a driving force in every community. We can learn a lot from our community’s young people, if only we choose to pay attention.
