Body is a Bridge: Artists in Conversation

Stigmatized ideas of beauty, ability, and health are maintained by dialogues that often disempower, disengage, or exclude those who don’t fit into a social norm or a specific age group. Body is a Bridge mingles the narratives of two distinct yet relative characters, Johanne and Bianca. Join Bianca in the Center Space Gallery as she discusses her experiences with disability, mental illness, and identity. Following this, Bianca and her twin sister, Riel, along with Johanne’s granddaughter and caretaker, Amber, will engage in informal conversation and answer audience questions relating to the exhibition’s themes and the creation of these bodies of work.
