July 26, 2021 - August 20, 2021
Hosted by Kickstart Disability Arts & Culture
Kickstart Disability Arts & Culture is thrilled to present the solo exhibition Constructed Identities by Persimmon Blackbridge, one of Canada’s most recognized Artists that identifies as living with a disability.
Constructed Identities, a major show of work by Persimmon Blackbridge, uses mixed media wood carving with found objects to question how disability is framed as a fracturing of ordinary life rather than a normal, expected part of it. Her exploration of the figure begins in disability, but necessarily complicates itself as our embodied identities intersect and overlap.
Join us for a Virtual Walkthrough with our Artistic Director Jenna Reid and Guest Curator Yuri Arajs, livestreaming on Facebook on Wednesday August 18th, 2021 at 7PM (PST)
