In Conversation with Kareen Weir
Hosted by Nia Centre for the Arts
Join us for a conversation with emerging, Jamaican-born visual artist, Kareen Weir. During this artist talk, Kareen will discuss her gone but not forgotten mural “Yuh Deh Yah?“, a question that very directly speaks to the act of being present; it asks us all, “are you here?”
Kareen will also discuss her current multidisciplinary artistic practice, and what lies ahead in her exciting future.
Kareen Weir is a Jamaican contemporary artist and writer who endeavours to be a teaching and living example of the positive products that come out of the Jamaican society. She is a graduate of the Edna Manley College with a major in Sculpture, but has been exploring the world of mural painting since immigrating to Canada. Her work looks at themes of memory, retention, representation and identity through language and the Black experience.
