Sound of Conversation

From Exhibits to Music to Feng Shui – Satellite Gallery Hosts an Evening of Stories and Conversation About Art

Sound of Conversation:

January 19, 2011 – 7:00 to 9:00 pm
Club 560, 560 Seymour Street

Satellite Gallery in collaboration with Department of Art History, Visual Art, and Theory
as well as the Department of Anthropology at UBC presents Sound of Conversation—a public event in conjunction with the exhibition No Windows—curated and organized by graduate students in Art History, Critical and Curatorial Studies, and Anthropology. Each speaker will have 7 minutes to astound, transform and ignite your imagination.

This eclectic evening of conversation presents cultural workers from a variety of backgrounds sharing intriguing stories from their careers, and exploring encounters they have experienced within institutions and their systems, processes, and frameworks. Sound of Conversation includes Sonny Assu (artist), Dana Claxton (artist), Mo Salemy (curator and artist), Teresa Bockhold (Feng Shui practitioner), Amanda Gibbs (Director of Audience Engagement, Museum of Vancouver), Heidi Reitmaier (Director & Curator of Education & Public Programs, Vancouver Art Gallery), and Victor Wang (independent curator and artist).

Join us for this evening of dialogue in a casual yet dynamic atmosphere on Wednesday, January 19th from 7 to 9 pm at Club 560.  Prior to the event, we invite you to explore the No Windows exhibition from 6 to 7 pm upstairs at Satellite Gallery. Free admission.
