Instagram Live with Sara Khan

I’ll be doing an Instagram live with the lovely Sara Khan (aka @mindforking) on the morning of Thursday June 24th at 10:30am PDT / 1:30pm EDT. We’ll be chatting about our current exhibitions and our work. I hope you can tune in.

I created a series of diptychs combining details of pieces from each of our shows. I love how these play off of each other.

Sara’s show, Roshni Ke Teh Mein (In the Fold of Light) opened at The Reach Gallery in Abbottsford in late May, and continues until September 4, 2021. It features her glorious watercolour paintings filled with pattern, colour, and meticulous details, as well as a large installation created from layered fabric. The exhibition is terrific.

It feels like a strange time to have a show, which is part of the reason the two of us decided to do this live conversation on Instagram. What does it mean to put so much of yourself into an exhibition that may not be seen by much of an audience due to Covid?
