Please join us for a FREE talk by Sanja Iveković, presented as part of the Fall 2020 Visual Art Forum.
The Audain Visual Artist in Residence (AVAIR) and the School for the Contemporary Arts (SCA) are pleased to announce the Fall 2020 Visual Art Forum, a term-long series of free online public lectures by a diverse group of leading contemporary artists and thinkers from Canada, UK, Europe, Asia, and Latin America. The Visual Art Forum is presented as part of the SCA’s AVAIR program and forms a central element of our studio and seminar classes.
Sanja Iveković is a Croatian photographer, performer, sculptor, and installation artist. Her work addresses such issues as female identity, media, consumerism, and political strife. Her artistic career began during the Croatian Spring in the early 1970s when, together with other artists, she broke away from mainstream settings, pioneering video, conceptual photomontages, and performance. Much of her work is centred on her own life and the place of women in today's society. She was the first artist in Croatia to label herself a feminist artist, and she has been a key player at the Centre for Women's Studies in Zagreb since it opened in 1994.
The Visual Art Forum is organized by Kathy Slade in collaboration with SCA Visual Art faculty Sabine Bitter, Raymond Boisjoly, Elspeth Pratt, and Judy Radul.
The Audain Visual Artist in Residence program brings artists and practitioners to Vancouver who have contributed significantly to the field of contemporary art and whose work resonates with local and international visual art discourses. The visiting artists interact with the students and faculty of the School for the Contemporary Arts as well as the broader visual arts and cultural communities. The program is generously funded by the Audain Foundation Endowment Fund.
The School for the Contemporary Arts recognizes that we are on the unceded and occupied territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations.
