Talk tonight

Verging on the Visible
Recent Art from Surrey and its Proximities

Speaker: Jordan Strom

Tuesday, 21 October 2014 7:00 PM

Djavad Mowafaghian World Art Centre,
Goldcorp Centre for the Arts, 149 W. Hastings St. Vancouver

Within the new multi-nodal city—especially the rapidly developing zones that are away from the traditional urban core—identifiable sites of deep time, cycles of extended journey, forms of ludic urban structure and aspects of mythic struggle can arise in daily life and art. In the City of Surrey, and its larger proximity south of the Fraser River, works of visual art have illuminated these categories against a backdrop of the contemporary city as refuge. It is here that the parameters of the ‘arrival city’s’ creative force is determined as much by internal migration under duress (such as the new waves of ‘flight’ from the city’s historical centres) as by transnational exile.

Drawing from several recent Surrey Art Gallery exhibitions including Beyond Vague Terrain: The City and the Serial Image (2012) & Scenes of Selves, Occasions for Ruses (2012) and Figuring Ground (2013) this presentation will examine select artworks that engage with the Canadian ‘edge city’ condition and situate a number of key artistic strategies—and the relative invisibility of ‘edge city’ cultural production—within both the Vancouver and international art contexts.
Presented by SFU’s Vancity Office of Community Engagement.
