Curatorial Tour with Hanss Lujan Torres



Sat, Sep 24th, 2022


3:00 pm


Join Curator Hanss Lujan Torres for a guided tour through 'Time As Relative'.

What is time, and how do we experience it? Recent and ongoing events have made us all aware that time is as fragile as it is precious. If the order of time were to collapse, for whom would it matter?

The passage of time depends on our frame of reference. Feminist and decolonial studies explain that our current perception of time is a social construct. Time binds, disciplines, and imposes social norms. Time as we know it is a structuring device that upkeeps traditions and life cycles that reinforce normative behaviours and colonial narratives.

"Time As Relative", curated by Hanss Lujan Torres explores temporalities unmediated by the structures of colonialism and heteronormativity from trans, queer, and non-binary perspectives. The artists in the exhibition share their nuanced understandings of time—ones that are fluid, non-linear, infinite, and subjective.

This exhibition features the works of Billy-Ray Belcourt, Léuli Eshrāghi, Kama La Mackerel, Lucas LaRochelle & Arielle Twist and will be on view in the Main Gallery from September 16 to October 22, 2022.

Join us on Saturday, September 24th from 3-5pm for a guided tour through the exhibition with curator Hanss Lujan Torres. This tour will provide a deeper understanding of the exhibition and the themes that influenced the curator, and provides an opportunity for questions and meaningful dialogue.

This event is free and open to the public.
