Black Liquorice Studio Pop-Up Exhibition
September 10th to 24th
Featuring the work of eight Okanagan-based artists:
Cassandra Adjetey, Moozhan Ahmadzadegan, Hana Hamaguchi, Maura Tamez, Xiaoxuan Huang, Lady Dia, Trophy Ewila and Meg Yamamoto.
While diverse in subject and medium, their work investigates the way an exploration of our roots and intersections of identity informs and creates our sense of home—home as a material reality: soil, stone, tree, flowers budding into fruit and life—a garden of relations that is placed in the imagination.
Roots&Gardens invites viewers to consider the ways we make home for ourselves—while occupying Syilx Land and the ways we invite or exclude others from doing the same.
ABOUT BLACK LIQUORICE STUDIO
Black Liquorice Studio is the growing BIPOC artist collective. With this inaugural exhibit, as with future activities, Black Liquorice Studio aims to provide a platform for underrepresented artists in the Okanagan; create opportunities for those artists to build professional relationships with other artists and arts organizations; to foster the development of new ideas and approaches in art and artists' working lives.
