Conversations

Join leading UBC scholars, artists, curators and critics in a series of midday conversations. We invite two prominent, disciplinarily distinct voices into the Gallery to discuss productive intersections of their own work and the current exhibition, followed by a discussion that includes the audience. In this series, guests will address Ai Weiwei: New York Photographs 1983-1993, an exhibition of 227 black-and-white photographs taken by the artist during the decade that he resided in New York City, his first time away from China. The New York photographs, presented in chronological order, form a layering of narratives that reflect a time when the artist was settling into a city and culture that was completely new to him.
