Our Lion Seminar Series, "The Art of Social Justice” is getting started next Thursday October 6!
Here's what we're exploring:
Join Dr. Bettina Stumm as she facilitates "Facing The Forgotten: Art and Photography on Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside"
About: 69 women went missing from Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside from 1978 to the early 2000s. All of them were marginalized by class, race, gender, and sexuality. Many of them were neglected and forgotten by society. Most of them were murdered.
One artist, Pamela Masik, was determined to have these women and the tragedies of their deaths remembered. Over the course of a number of years she painted enormous portraits of each of the 69 women. Masik entitled the collection “The Forgotten” and it was scheduled to run as a special exhibit at the MOA from February 15 to March 21, 2011. At the last minute, it was cancelled due to a huge public outcry again the portraits. Why did they raise such a protest? If this art was offensive, then what kind of art should be used to memorialize victims of murder? And who has the right to create art in the face of tragedy?
In this seminar we’ll be viewing some of Masik’s portraits and discussing the challenging roles of art and the artist in depicting women of tragedy and loss.
