Reach Gallery hosts panel discussion on Tales Untold exhibit

Themes in Abbotsford show include feminism and the#MeToo movement

The Reach Gallery Museum hosts a publication launch and panel discussion on Monday, July 16 for its latest exhibition publication, Tales Untold.

The free event takes place from 6 to 8 p.m. at The Reach (32388 Veterans Way) and includes a panel dialogue with artist Davida Kidd, and authors Susan Musgrave, Zsuzsi Gartner and Erika Thorkelson.

The discussion will be followed by a question-and-answer session.

“The conversation will deal with the prevailing themes in the exhibition, including feminism and the #MeToo movement, and will also touch on the relationship between visual art and creative writing,” said Adrienne Fast, curator of art and visual culture at The Reach.

The exhibition Tales Untold features the work of three visual artists: Kidd, Rebecca Chaperon, and Chris Reid.

Working across painting, photography, and sculpture, these artists share a common interest in the power of storytelling and the possibilities of narrative structure in visual form.

Their works conjure imaginative worlds, at times suggestive of fairytales, haunting dreamscapes, or vaguely recalled childhood memories.

To further explore the relationship between visual art and narrative storytelling, The Reach has invited four accomplished B.C. authors to respond to, and help shape, the exhibition.

Musgrave, Gartner, Thorkelson and Chelsea Rooney assisted in choosing individual works of art, and produced creative texts in response to their selections.
