Workshops & Education
Participants: Maryse Larivière, Shazia Hafiz Ramji
Please join The Writing Table for a workshop with artist and writer, Maryse Larivière, and poet and critic, Shazia Hafiz Ramji. The two-part workshop begins with an introduction to Larivière’s multi-sensory and autofictional practice that explores the idea of the captive author, which encourages performative and embodied strategies towards writing. Held in conjunction with Larivière’s exhibition, Orgazing, Writing the Atmospheres invokes the artist’s recent book, which takes the form of an epistolary novel written by an unnamed female protagonist held captive on a remote island.
Orgazing was produced with the support of the Conseil des Arts and des Lettres du Québec, Untitled Art Society (Calgary), and CCA Glasgow.
Weiyi Chang’s curatorial residency is supported by the British Columbia Arts Council.
The Or Gallery acknowledges its presence on unceded xwməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) territories.
