Event Transits & Returns

Transits & Returns

Book Launch

29 February 2020
2–3pm

Join artists Elisa Jane Carmichael and Chantal Fraser, and curator Freja Carmichael for an intimate afternoon book launch at the IMA Gallery Shop.

Co-produced with Vancouver Art Gallery, this catalogue Transits & Returns is the culmination of a global Indigenous curatorial project that began with the 2018 exhibition The Commute at the IMA. The project has since morphed into two more exhibitions; Layover (2019) at Artspace Aotearoa and Transits and Returns (2020), recently on display at Vancouver Art Gallery.

Transits & Returns includes a collectively authored text by the exhibition’s curators—Tarah Hogue, Sarah Biscarra Dilley, Freja Carmichael, Léuli Eshrāghi and Lana Lopesi—alongside two conversational texts by guest writers David Garneau and Kimberley Moulton, and Kahutoi Mere Te Kanawa and Marianne Nicolson. Essays explore the complexities of being Indigenous in the 21st century through recent art, curation, and scholarship by Indigenous practitioners.

Join Elisa, Chantal, and Freja at the IMA as they reflect on the development of the collaborative project across its three venues and share behind-the-scenes photos and stories.
