SUM gallery Summer programming

As published by SUM Gallery + QAF

 

Sum gallery

SUM is the only gallery in Canada presenting multidisciplinary queer art and we continuously aim to showcase this work in community and artistic partners as a publicly-accessible space.

Karin Lee: QueerSUM心 is the gallery’s inaugural exhibition, presenting three of Karin Lee’s media works: a 2-channel remix of her classic 16mm film My Sweet Peony Remix, a fantastical drama shot in the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Gardens; Portrait of a Girl, a documentary shot in Beijing; and Small Pleasures, a period drama set in Barkerville BC.

SUM conversarions

Join us at SUM gallery for a two-part gathering, sharing art and conversation on the topic of displacement.  Through these gatherings we invite the public and artists to come together to explore: what can it look like to challenge displacement thought art? What kind of creation is possible in relationship to displacement? How do the lived realities of displacement/location fuel or inhibit organizing and creating? Where can the queer body and the displaced body intersect? what can happen at that intersection?

Thursday July 19th at 7pm
Explore these questions with filmmaker Karin Lee, text-based artist Anahita Jamali Rad, and writers Chelene Knight and Zoe Mix, in partnership with The Capilano Review.
This event is made possible with funding from Canada Council for the Arts, Heritage Canada, City of Vancouver Cultural Services, and the Quebec Writers’ Federation.

Thursday July 26th at 7pm
Engage with community organizers and artists Cicely Blain, Shane Sable, and Yulanda Lui.
This event is made possible with funding from Heritage Canada.

The gallery opens at 12pm, so come early to see Karin Lee’s QueerSum 心 exhibition.
