Image/Text Workshop with Fred Wah
2:30-4:30 pm Thurs. Nov. 16th, 2017
@ MacKenzie Art Gallery

Free admission with pre-registration.
Space is limited to 10 participants.
Please register for workshop by emailing

Fred Wah will share insights and images from a collaborative visual art project he is involved with focused on the Columbia River. One of the outcomes of the project is a long poem, beholden: a poem as long as the river. Co-written with Vancouver poet Rita Wong, the poem is 114 feet long and typed on either side of a printout of the Columbia River. The poetic image installation is presently at Touchstones Gallery in Nelson, BC and will be at Emily Carr University in March. Along with the Columbia River project, Fred will briefly talk about a few other image/text projects he’s been involved with, mostly available in his book, Sentenced to Light.

Participants in this Image/Text Workshop are asked to bring a photograph of a nearby waterway (for ex. Wascana Creek or the South Saskatchewan River) along with a poetic text that somehow relates to the photo. During the workshop, there will be time to look at and listen to each person’s photo/poem and discuss.
