Longing For What Might Be
March 17 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 12:00 pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, repeating until March 17, 2023
Longing For What Might Be is a group exhibition based on collaborative creative correspondence to the current women-led uprising happening in Iran. During the ten days of this event, artists and scholars discuss and negotiate how they feel about the events and how Women, Life, Freedom slogan could be a pathway for the possible liberation of Iranian people as well as visually representing their embodied and overwhelming emotions tangled with everyday life living in Canada while being far from home.
From the early days of this uprising, art became the main language for many protestors to covertly and peacefully voice their call for freedom as a form of art activism. This group exhibition influenced by and aligned with these creative performances is intended to attract attention in our academic environment for further awareness and conversation regarding diversity, inclusivity, gender equality, and human rights.
Longing For What Might Be is presented with the assistance of The Global Lounge, UBC Arts & Culture District, and the UBC Sexual Assault Support Center (SASC) an arts-based support group to foster community, build coping strategies, and explore connecting ta our creativity as a source of healing.
