A Grammar of Loss: Studies in Erasure: Chantal Gibson @ Open Space Feb 22 2020
Sat. February 22nd 2020 - Sat. March 28th 2020 @ Open Space 510 Fort Street
Free (All Ages) 12-5pm
Opening: Friday 21st February 2020
From Feb 21 to March 28, Vancouver-based artist-educator Chantal Gibson returns to Open Space with A Grammar of Loss: Studies in Erasure, a show of new and recent work building on her 2019 exhibition, How She Read: Confronting the Romance of Empire. Turning towards contested objects to edit, redact, and transform them, the exhibition explores the dis/comfort of engaging in this de/colonial moment, offering a visually poetic response to the question “What does it mean to decolonize a text?” The artist will participate in a community residency March 21-28. There will be an opening reception for the work Friday, Feb 21, 7-9pm.
