Kitchen Conversations: Teen Talks

Ages:
12+
Admission:
FREE
Join us on the third Thursday of the month for a guided tour of our exhibitions followed by a lively Kitchen Conversation in our studios. Our exhibitions often explore politically and socially charged issues. Through these Kitchen Conversations (so-called because of the great conversations that can happen in kitchens), we hope to open the dialogue up to you—our community—so that we can come together and share perspectives.

In the spring, we hand over the reigns to our Teen Interns and foreground the youth perspective. What issues are important to Kamloops youth? What was it like to be a teen when you were young? What has changed—what should change? Through Kitchen Conversations: Teen Talks we hope to bring all generations of Kamloopsians together to talk about issues important to our youth.

Light refreshments will be provided.

A Living Folk Art Tradition from India: Bengali Pats and Patuas

Interim Curator Adrienne Fast is excited to present this talk on a unique folk art form that has been practiced in India for centuries, and which continues to this day in Bengal. Created by a community of wandering, singing storytellers known as Patuas, Pat scroll paintings are colourful, dynamic and endlessly adaptable to many audiences. The Pat art form flourished in the bustling metropolis of 19th century Calcutta and they provide a fascinating insight into the rapid changes the city experienced at that time. Contemporary Pats engage with pop culture and world events in ways that will surprise and delight!

Artist's Talk: Matt Macintosh in conversation with Craig Willms

Next Date:
Ages:
All
Admission:
FREE
Join us in our studios for a conversation between Kamloops-based artist Matt Macintosh and Kamloops Art Gallery Assistant Curator Craig Willms.

Matt Macintosh is a Kamloops–based artist working with found images and objects, painting, video and sound. His work explores the effects of erasure, systematization and repetition on cultural canon materials as they relate to fundamental human experiences like the longing for emancipation. With an interest in the role of abstraction in the relationship between identity and knowledge production, his work intervenes on or stands in critical relation to existing objects, text or imagery—and to the media used to embody them—in order to open up the terms under which they are discussed and understood. He studied Drawing and Painting at the Ontario College of Art and Design before completing his Master of Visual Studies degree at the University of Toronto. Currently Curator at the Kamloops Museum and Archives, he has exhibited in Canada and the US.
