School of Art Gallery, University of Manitoba: Living On by Lidwien van de Ven, March 10 - April 28

Exhibition Dates: March 10 – April 28, 2017

Reception: March 10, 12:00-1:30 pm

Talk and Tour: March 10, 1:30-2:45 pm

In conjunction with the journal Mosaic's 50th-Anniversary Symposium, "Living On," the School of Art Gallery is pleased to present the photographic work of Lidwien van de Ven. Curated by Dr. Shepherd Steiner, the installation will be van de Ven's first solo exhibition in North America. Van de Ven's work is content rich and politically loaded. Since the late 1990s, her photography has focused on the geographies of Islam, multiculturalism in Europe, more recently Dutch colonialism in Indonesia, and always with a consistent attention to the shifting borders of aesthetics, politics, and religion.

Please join us on March 10 for the opening reception and a conversation between van de Ven and Dr. Axelle Karera (Visiting Assistant Professor of Philosophy Wesleyan University). Dr. Karera and van de Ven will discuss themes of photography, race, and rights as they pertain to the futures of photography.

A lunchtime lecture series by University of Manitoba faculty will begin in Mid-March, as will student-led tours of the exhibition.

Lidwien van de Ven's exhibition is supported by the University of Manitoba School of Art, the University of Manitoba Centre for Human Rights Research, and the Mondrian Fund.

Gallery Hours: Monday to Friday, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm. Admission is Free.
