Our #AGEArtistSeries with Germaine Koh continues! -- Q5: You are the first Artist-in-Residence for the City of Vancouver’s Engineering department. What does it mean to you to be involved with a municipal engineering branch? GK:I see my residency with the City of Vancouver’s Engineering Services as an opportunity to bring more awareness to the complex and intertwined systems (mechanical and human) that mesh together to keep the city working. I’m also doing workshops within the Engineering department to try to create more space for creative play, risk, and uncertainty — all hallmarks of art-making but which are also useful tools to make cities more agile. Throughout, I’m trying to work in an exemplary way, to show that it’s possible to incorporate creative thinking and design into engineering projects and processes in a way that is pragmatic and efficient, while still being inspiring and thought-provoking — which to me is the purpose of art. • • 📷: Michael Love From "What Are Our Supports?" curated by Joni Low and organized by the Richmond Art Gallery and the Or Gallery. #homemadehome #artgalleryatevergreen #visualart #cityofcoquitlam #contemporaryart #artistinterview #tinyliving #tinyhome #tinyhousing @evergreenarts @wolinoj @richmondartgallery @orgallery

#AGEArtistSeries - Germaine Koh Q2: What is your favourite, perhaps unexpected, skill that you learned from DIY building? GK: I have been happy to see how satisfying and transformative it has been for some of our workers, starting with little construction experience, to build something solid and tangible. For myself as well, it has been really rewarding to tackle and complete a project that I knew was going to challenge my problem-solving skills and require me to acquire new skills and to orchestrate the whole process well. I have been surprised at how many times I realize in the middle of a work day how much HAPPIER I feel when physically making things than when I am sitting in front of a computer. 📷: Emily Johnson - @home_made_home @germkoh @richmondartgallery #homemadehome #artgalleryatevergreen #cityofcoquitlam @evergreenarts #contemporaryart #artistinterview #visualart #tinyhouse #tinyhouseliving #tinyliving

#AGEArtistSeries - Germaine Koh Q1: The exhibition Home Made Home illustrates how anyone can propose creative solutions for sustainable living and the growing housing crisis in the Lower Mainland. Your practice often amplifies simple and everyday gestures. While not everyone has the immediate means to build their own tiny home, what are things that folks can do in their daily lives to address some of the themes in this exhibition? - GK:Choosing small living is typically based on a few related values, which one can pursue without going as far as actually building one’s own house: reducing one’s ecological footprint, rethinking community, and being self-sufficient. On the ecological front, we can live more “intentionally” by choosing energy-efficient materials, reducing car travel and energy consumption, and decluttering. We can start to reimagine the city by, for example, pursuing collective models of community such as car sharing, co-working, and collective housing. We can work towards self-sufficiency by learning to make and repair things and growing some of our own food. - Photos courtesy of Germaine Koh #homemadehome @germkoh @home_made_home #artgalleryatevergreen #AGE #artgallery #cityofcoquitlam @evergreenarts #contemporaryart #artistinterview #visualart #tinyhouse #tinyliving

This week we feature the talent of some of Coquitlam’s Seniors. We asked the Glen Pine 50Plus Seniors craft group to interpret Jim Shaw’s instruction for our DO IT exhibition. Shaw asks his audience to think long and hard about what would make an inspiring piece. Use whatever talents one might have and execute it as theirs. . We had a blast as we welcomed them into our space for their opening yesterday. Their work will be up from August 8-14 and access to this display is available upon request when you visit the gallery. - #craft #Glenpine50plusseniors #artgalleryatevergreen #lifelonglearning #AGEdoit @cityofcoquitlam at Evergreen Cultural Centre

Thank you everyone who visited the AGE to see Ben Reeves’ exhibition. If you have not seen it, Saturday June 30 is the last day to see his work. Hours are in our Bio. - #AGEartistseries Q: How would you define contemporary art? - BR: This is a difficult question. The field of painting is wide open. You can find serious painters pursuing every kind of approach imaginable. And you can find it online. This has changed the commodity aspect of painting—it exists virtually and is disseminated widely. Perhaps this marks a forking of the path where painters adapt their works to function effectively online or, conversely, make works that can only be truly experienced in person. . But, ultimately, to answer your question, I wouldn’t define contemporary art. I’ll leave that to others. I think it is important for artists to push beyond definitions. - To read the whole interview, visit evergreenculturalcentre.ca/blog - Image: installation view of ‘Floating Among Phantoms’ | Photo Credit: Rachel Topham Photography @racheltophamphotography - @benreevesecuad @equinoxgallery #artgalleryatevergreen #artgallery #tricities #benreeves #floatingamongphantoms #AGE #CityofCoquitlam #painting #contemporaryart #artistinterview #visualart

#AGEArtistSeries - Q: As an Associate Professor at Emily Carr University of Art + Design, what advice do you give to your students beginning a career in the art world? - BR: Art is not an easy path. But then again, there are few easy paths. One thing that can be incredibly difficult to do is to value one’s own ways of seeing and thinking. In my introductory painting classes we often start with colour exercises and it quickly becomes clear that everyone has their own colour sensibility. We are drawn to different colours and combine them in particular ways. And we all make marks differently. My painting professor at UBC, Robert Young, described this by saying everyone has “their own calligraphy.” These are small things, but if we value, recognize, develop and push our own sensibilities the results can be unique and dramatic. - At the same time it is crucial to be open and to challenge ourselves with different ideas and experiences. Art is a space for thinking about and being curious about the world. This is a tricky balance: nurturing our own voice while being open to voices of others. The ability to be honest with oneself is a useful talent. - Check out our blog post on Ben Reeves to read the whole interview at evergreenculturalcentre.ca/blog/ - Image: Photograph of Ben Reeves’ visit during the installation of the exhibition. 📷: Jessica Fowlis. - #floatingamongphantoms @benreevesecuad #artgalleryatevergreen #AGE #artgallery #tricities #evergreenculturalcentre #cityofcoquitlam @evergreenarts @equinoxgallery @emilycarru @emilycarrmfa at Evergreen Cultural Centre

#AGEArtistSeries - Q: What does the title of your exhibition, Floating Among Phantoms, suggest to viewers about the exhibition? - BR: The world does not have a fixed, defined shape. Reality is malleable. We have lots of ideas about how things are, but these ideas never fit like a glove— they are just versions among many other versions. The title comes from curator, Katherine Dennis’ careful reading of Italo Calvino’s novel, Mr. Palomar. The titular protagonist is on a mission to understand the world (and his place in it) through the power of empirical observation. Even though he is exceptionally talented in this regard, his enterprise is absurd. It is dryly comical and he is doomed to fail. This leads him (and the reader) to larger philosophical questions. - #floatingamongphantoms #palomar #italocalvino @benreevesecuad #cityofcoquitlam #evergreenculturalcentre #artgalleryatevergreen at Evergreen Cultural Centre

Thank you for joining us last night for Ben Reeves’ book launch and artist talk! We loved having you. - #AGEArtistSeries - Q: How did moving from downtown Vancouver to the suburbs of Tsawwassen influence your practice? . BR: Moving to Tsawwassen forced me to take stock of things. I grew up in Lynn Valley on the North Shore. Tsawwassen is on the other side of Vancouver and reflects the suburbs of my childhood. I found myself thinking across time and geography to the other side of the city—to my adolescence—those wonderful, difficult years suffused with naive idealism. In Tsawwassen I think I began to reflect on where I am in my adult life and how it does and doesn’t line up with those early dreams. This reflective attitude started to appear in the work. . And, as British, sci-fi writer J G Ballard said, “Actually, the suburbs are far more sinister places than most city dwellers imagine. Their very blandness forces the imagination into new areas. I mean, one’s got to get up in the morning thinking of a deviant act, merely to make certain of one’s freedom.” A bit of rebelliousness can be useful to an art practice. - #artgalleryatevergreen @equinoxgallery @benreevesecuad #floatingamongphantoms @emilycarru @emilycarrmfa at Evergreen Cultural Centre

#AGEArtistSeries with @benreeves - Q: Recently you’ve incorporated collage into your work, generally applying pieces of painted linen canvas to the surface of the painting. How has this technique impacted your exploration of the materiality of paint? . BR: Collaging started as a way for me to test a composition before painting it out and fully committing to it. I decided that I liked the boldness and directness of the collaged elements so I started to keep them. Typically they depict a recognizable form, say a tree branch. But because they are physically added onto the painted object, they have a formal autonomy that I like. They resist being easily resolved into a fixed understanding or picture. I started to use canvas as a collage element because it relates to the substrate of the painting. This calls back to earlier works of mine where I would “pull painting apart” and consider different elements that make up a painting - Image: Iterations of the interactive collage activity in our lobby that were created by visitors. Canvas pieces are from Reeves’ studio. Try creating your own collage when visiting the exhibition.

#AGEArtistSeries with @gailanngan | Your installations include natural elements such as driftwood and plants, you also incorporate manufactured and industrial made elements. How are you thinking about the relationship between nature and human-made materials in your work? GN: The space where nature and human-made collide is always fascinating. Manufactured and nature made materials can be blurred- for example a beaver cut log (animal made) in the form of driftwood, garbage rope sun-bleached and ocean tossed, and hyper bred plants (human expedited breeding). In addition, a lot of building materials are now created to look like nature made materials- ceramic tiles made to look like various marbles, laminate to look like the desert floor etc. Truly all materials come from the planet. I was excited to learn that no new elements are found in the universe that are already found here on planet Earth. Therefore, the whole universe is made up of the same elements that planet Earth is made up of and no more. We really are “star dust”. Then there are ceramics- taking mined and sourced materials and forcing them through a chemical reaction by way of intense heat creating a human made material. I love the intricacies of all these materials colliding and transforming into something other. I have been thinking of intertidal (area where land and ocean meet) and ideas around that- where two worlds meet and a lot happens, a lot of life is created in this in-between space.

#AGEArtistSeries with Gailan Ngan | Your work suggests a strong interest in the architectural space in which your art is situated. What influence does the gallery environment have on the way in which you present your sculptures? GN: It all comes down to the negation of the plinth. It is a structure I do not like to use, even though the plinth has its specific uses within a gallery. To counteract this problem, I use the gallery environment/architecture as a starting point for the various ways of showing the work. I like to use the floor, platforms, and walls. In the future, I would like to do some hanging work. So, when I start to place work within the space I will think about various materials that can relate to the architecture of the specific gallery.

#AGEArtistSeries with Gailan Ngan | What is your most important tool as an artist? GN: If I had to pick one it would be the potter’s wheel. It’s hard to pick one because sometimes the smallest tool can open new doors into a world of possibility. A newly discovered clay can do this as well. Then there are always the possibilities of new technologies influencing age-old traditions of the practice - an example of this would be computerized kilns.

#AGEArtistSeries with Gailan Ngan | Many of your clays and glazes are sourced from the BC environment. Can you tell me more about the type of clay you use and how you make these selections? GN: Natural clays can be used for clay (forming), slip (decoration) or as a glaze. Rocks can be used to make glazes. Depending on the melting temperature of the various materials they are used accordingly. However, you can alter the melting temperature with fluxes and refractory materials. I also fire at numerous temperatures so this compounds the variation I can come up with. Making your own glazes/clays with foraged and commercial materials is very much applied chemistry. I find with my sculptural work this process can get very playful and I do not have to follow the strict guidelines of functional pottery like food safe, sharp bits, or porosity. I use many commercially available clays and I like to “de-school” myself by using the “wrong” clay for the work so that my skills are tasked. Failure can be interesting! • • • • #artgalleryatevergreen #artgallery #tricities #gailanngan #chronicles #AGE #cityofcoquitlam #explorecoquitlam #ceramics #exhibition #sculpture #contemporaryart #visualart #artistinterview at Art Gallery at Evergreen

Emerging Talent Alumni | Where Are They Now? 
NAME: Ola Volo ET YEAR: 2007 
BIOGRAPHY: Ola Volo (BFA, Emily Carr University) is a Canadian illustrator from Kazakhstan with a distinctive style drawn from history, multiculturalism, and folklore. Her intricate works bring animals, people, architecture, and nature together to articulate diverse stories rich with symbolism and elaborate forms. Ola creates winding narratives that acknowledge the subtleties of human nature while celebrating the surprises of everyday life. 
1. Your work has a very distinct style, can you tell me about your interest in folklore and how this is incorporated into your murals? 
A: I have been inspired by narrative illustrations ever since I can remember and have always loved folk tales. Turning my work into large folk artworks on a
wall kind of mirrors what folk has always been about - inclusivity, shared anywhere in the world and about bringing beauty to the world. I see my work contributing to spaces and giving back a positive energy. 
2. After Graduating from Emily Carr University what resulted in your success as a freelance artist? 
A: I decided to take a chance and move to the most creative hub in the world, New York City! It was a very important part of my journey because it allowed me to meet other creatives my age who were making their hobbies into careers. It gave me a glimpse of what hard work can bring and the importance of really putting yourself out there. Being out of your comfort zone allowed me to feel inspired and added a whole new layer to my work. Ever since I have been moving to new cities and finding new inspirations and new connections. I believe that taking advantage of your mobility as a freelancer is a big part of staying relevant and curious about your work. 
3. What advice would you give to the emerging artists this year? 
A: My biggest advice is to really work hard and reach out to people who inspire you to ask questions and be curious. Be professional - and most of all, follow your heart and don’t worry about critics, everyone has a point of view so try to stick to your gut feeling, it rarely fails.

Emerging Talent Alumni | Where Are They Now? NAME: Travis Anderson ET YEAR: 2013 BIOGRAPHY: Travis Anderson is a driven concept artist and modeler, with a multi-faceted skill set. He is able to design creatively and flesh out a concept into a final 3D asset that is animation or game ready. 1. Can you tell me about your process when designing concept art of characters and environments? A: Often the design process starts from a description from the client which is discussed and quickly iterated on with quick painterly thumbnails of what the final might be. Then upon agreeing upon which direction works the director. I often either do a quick 3D mock-up of the scene or refine the thumbnails into a clean block in of colours. After that depending on the piece, I show the artwork at the halfway stage and then proceed to do final rendering and clean up. 2. You are currently working as the Art Lead at Tabula games. How did your studies at Emily Carr University prepare you to be a successful concept artist? A: I have implemented the 3D workflow I learned at Emily Carr as well as what I learned from my anatomy studies. However, when it comes to illustration I have gathered my current knowledge from various other sources both online and from fellow artists. 3. What advice would you give to the emerging artists this year? A: It really depends. If you don't know what you want to do in the art field universities like Emily Carr can help you figure that out. However, I would suggest instead doing soul-searching, I would take the time to take focused classes online or otherwise in what you're interested in. If you know what you want to do, focus on the school and classes you need to improve your skill set. Never settle and aim for the education or career you always dreamed about and when you fail because you will, pick yourself back up and try again in a different way. Just never give up.

Emerging Talent Alumni | Where Are They Now? NAME: Gloria Han ET YEAR: 2012 BIOGRAPHY: Gloria Han was born and raised in the Lower Mainland. She graduated from Gleneagle Secondary School in 2012 and continued her art education at Emily Carr. She attends the School of the Art Institute of Chicago graduate program and plans on completing her Masters of Fine Arts degree by May 2019. 1. Can you tell me about your experience as the Ceramic Artist-in-Residence 2016-2017 at the Port Moody Arts Centre? How did this experience inform your practice? A: Being able to continue my practice so fresh out of school was so meaningful. I had to be self-motivated in order to produce enough work for my year-end show at PMAC. This meant being my worst critic and best cheerleader. Luckily, there was such a great community of artists who were at all stages in their practices to help push me. The experience helped me become a more resilient artist. 2. You’ve taught various ceramics classes, including wheel throwing. What’s the most important advice you give to your students? A: Learning how to wheel throw is a humbling experience. Often, not even the thirtieth attempt will turn out the way that one hopes. My advice is for them to recognize when something is beyond repair and start a new pot because you don’t need that kind of negativity in your life. I had students from ages 8 to 68. Maybe older, maybe younger. This applied to everyone, and not just about pots. Bonus: Artsy published an article called ‘Why Ceramic Artists Are So Good at Dealing with Failure’ 3. What benefits did you gain from exhibiting your work with "Emerging Talent"? A: It was exciting to see my work put on display in such a formal setting for the first time. That feeling helped me feel more grounded in my decision to attend Emily Carr - I wanted that forever. Exhibition experience is such an important part of building a professional career but it can also be a daunting one. Getting the first one (thus, the most difficult) out of the way before even graduating high school gave me a sense of confidence going into my Foundation Year. at Art Gallery at Evergreen

Emerging Talent Alumni | Where Are They Now? NAME: Grace Yu ET YEAR: 2013 BIOGRAPHY: I knew since I was a child that I wanted to pursue a career where I can use my creativity and visual arts skills. I graduated from Gleneagle Secondary and attended Capilano University’s Illustration and Design program. I am currently working as a graphic designer in Vancouver. 1. You work with a wide-variety of clients including wineries, baseball teams, and non-profit organizations. Can you describe your creative process when developing a brand identity? A: I usually begin with research. I learn about the client and try to find what makes them unique. I choose themes that communicate the company’s message. Once I have decided on which concepts I want to explore further, I collect images, textures, and colors that represent these concepts. This helps me communicate my ideas to others. I work at an agency with many talented designers who help me improve my work through critiques. After the work has been finalized within the team, we send the strongest concepts to the client. If the client sees something they feel successfully represents their brand, then we can start creating logos, layouts, and other important assets. 2. What kind of design projects interest you? A: I love working on packaging. There is something magical about creating a flat design on your computer, and then watching it come to life as a three dimensional object you can interact with. 3. What benefits did you gain from exhibiting your work with Emerging Talent? A: I felt a sense of accomplishment knowing that many people could see and enjoy my work. The work I produced for the show were strong pieces in my portfolio. I also learned how to explain and talk about my ideas. 4. What advice would you give to the emerging artists this year? A: Create work that you are truly passionate about. Don’t be afraid to explore and try new mediums and techniques.

Emerging Talent Alumni | Where Are They Now? NAME: Gracey Zhang ET YEAR: 2011 BIOGRAPHY: G, Grace, Gracey is a freelance illustrator, BFA in Illustration from the Rhode Island School of Design. Born and raised in Vancouver, Canada, educated in the United States, she is now based in New York riding that train while thinking of warmer climates. 1. You’ve completed a residency in Rio de Janeiro and will head to France for another residency this year. What value do you see in participating in residencies? A: Residencies offer the time and space to work on projects undisturbed by a lot of the everyday things that distract you or take you away from personal projects. I've also found it a great way to be immersed in a new city with other creatives and opening up new avenues both in your professional and personal life. 2. How did participating in residencies impact your practice? A: In a way it gave me more freedom to explore different approaches but also grounded me as the routine let me focus on creating things I enjoyed. 3. After graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design, The New York Times commissioned you to illustrate one of their opinion pieces. Can you talk about this experience and what attributes you would give to your success as a freelance artist? A: I had some great classes with professors who were already in the industry and their advice has proved useful now and then. Getting your name out and sending out materials while in school is a great way to ease the transition into post-grad. 4. What advice would you give to the emerging artists this year? A: Have fun and stick to your guns! Things are only really just beginning and it's a great time to experiment with different things without feeling forced to be within a certain category.

People and Art. • Sitting with Elizabeth Zvonar's "Party Central," 2017. • With a sense of curiosity, humour, and suspicion of social norms, Elizabeth Zvonar collects, cuts and collages bits of visual culture from disparate sources. In this way her work both flattens time and contexts, and opens up questions about our multiple and overlapping identities. • Zvonar spent two artist residencies creating collages and contemplating the work of physicists and philosophers, and in particular the newest translation of Simone de Beauvoir's "The Second Sex." The book maps out the foundation of feminisms as we know them today and see them still gaining momentum, despite being written almost 70 years ago, translated initially by a zoologist, and published at a time when contraception was illegal in France, for fear it undermined notions of male virility. • This is the final weekend of her exhibition "The Future is Coming Every Day" at the Evergreen Cultural Centre. Go and see the show! • • • #coquitlam   #canada  @elizabeth.zvonar   #elizabeth.zvonar  @gallery_at_evergreen   #artgalleryatevergreen   #gallery   #photo   #photography   #collage   #woman   #fingers   #flower  #feminism  #simonedebeauvoir #secondsex   #art   #exhibition   #peopleandart   #artwork   #contemporaryart   #sallybuck  #artwatchers   #artwatchers_united  #artoftheday  #womenartists   #girlsinmuseums   #instaart   #igersart  #peoplelookingatart at Art Gallery at Evergreen

Our final question of the #AGEArtistSeries with Elizabeth Zvonar. Her exhibition “The Future is Coming Every Day” closes in just 5 days. Q: How would you define ‘contemporary’ art? A: Contemporary art is made in our time and contextualized through how we understand history. I remember not too long ago, maybe 20 years ago, I had trouble locating examples of contemporary art that encompassed a full sense of the active practices that I was aware of existing internationally. The advent of the Internet has offered a fuller sense of what cultural producers do. It bridges geographical gaps, bringing thinkers and makers into closer proximity with one another and offers a rich engagement of what contemporary means to creative and cultural practice. • • • • #AGEArtistSeries #elizabethzvonar #artgalleryatevergreen #evergreenculturalcentre #artgallery #exhibition #thefutureiscomingeveryday #artistinterview #cityofcoquitlam #explorecoquitlam #tricities #art #contemporaryart #collage #visualart at Art Gallery at Evergreen

#AGEArtistSeries with Elizabeth Zvonar, you can see her exhibition “The Future is Coming Every Day” until January 7th at the Art Gallery at Evergreen. Q: What advice have you received that has influenced your practice? A: One of the best pieces of advice I’ve received about being an artist is that the practice is fundamentally a different structure from more conventional achievement and advancement career models. There are busy peaks that don’t necessarily have any monetary support and slower valleys that might be more stable in terms of life infrastructure. Recognizing this is key in order to plan and to live productively through the ebb and flows. • • • • #AGEArtistSeries #elizabethzvonar #artgalleryatevergreen #evergreenculturalcentre #artgallery #exhibition #thefutureiscomingeveryday #artistinterview #cityofcoquitlam #explorecoquitlam #tricities #art #contemporaryart #collage #visualart at Art Gallery at Evergreen

#AGEArtistSeries with Elizabeth Zvonar, be sure to check out her exhibition “The Future is Coming Every Day” at the Art Gallery at Evergreen. Q: The hand reoccurs periodically in your practice. What interests you in the hand and the historical and cultural gestures associated with it? A: The hand is loaded intellectually, theoretically and aesthetically through history. It is a metaphor for resistance, persistence and will. • • • • #AGEArtistSeries #elizabethzvonar #artgalleryatevergreen #evergreenculturalcentre #artgallery #exhibition #thefutureiscomingeveryday #artistinterview #cityofcoquitlam #explorecoquitlam #tricities #art #contemporaryart #collage #visualart at Art Gallery at Evergreen

#AGEArtistSeries with Elizabeth Zvonar, be sure to check out her exhibition “The Future is Coming Every Day” at the Art Gallery at Evergreen. Q: Your collages are composed of source materials drawn from art historical references, contemporary advertising and popular culture. How do you address questions of copyright within your work, particularly for viewers less familiar with appropriation in art? A: As long as an image is altered from its original context by 10%, there isn’t a problem. I am interested in altering the image enough so that what remains is a feeling of familiarity that generates a curiosity to look and think about the image for a little bit longer than we generally take the time to view an image. • • • • #AGEArtistSeries #elizabethzvonar #artgalleryatevergreen #evergreenculturalcentre #artgallery #exhibition #thefutureiscomingeveryday #artistinterview #cityofcoquitlam #explorecoquitlam #tricities #art #contemporaryart #collage #visualart at Art Gallery at Evergreen

#AGEArtistSeries with Elizabeth Zvonar, be sure to check out her exhibition “The Future is Coming Every Day” at the Art Gallery at Evergreen. Q: You’re a strong believer in “less is more”; can you explain this reductive approach to collage and why this method is important to your practice? A: A minimalist approach to art, design and aesthetics when done well, opens up ways of seeing for a viewer. Humans have a high capacity for understanding what is not present visually or aurally for example, through memory, experience and intuition. Paring things down visually challenges that capacity and allows one to experience what they see through their subjective experience. Less is more creates a framework without overwhelming the final result. • • • • #AGEArtistSeries #elizabethzvonar #artgalleryatevergreen #evergreenculturalcentre #artgallery #exhibition #thefutureiscomingeveryday #artistinterview #cityofcoquitlam #explorecoquitlam #tricities #art #contemporaryart #collage #visualart at Art Gallery at Evergreen

Elizabeth Zvonar explores core ideas of feminism, metaphysics and time, shaped by her reading of the latest translation of Simone de Beauvoir’s “The Second Sex”. The literary influences in Zvonar’s art extend well beyond this single publication. We asked the artist what books she would like to share with you, our audience, and she put together an extensive list of feminist theory and fictional narratives that cross a diverse range of historical and contemporary writing. A selection of the titles are now available to borrow from the Coquitlam Public Library City Centre Branch. • • • • #coquitlampubliclibrary #readinglist #elizabethzvonar #artgalleryatevergreen #evergreenculturalcentre #artgallery #exhibition #thefutureiscomingeveryday #artistinterview #cityofcoquitlam #explorecoquitlam #tricities #art #contemporaryart #collage #visualart at Coquitlam Public Library

Introducing the new #AGEArtistSeries! We will be interviewing our exhibiting artists and sharing their answers with you throughout the exhibition. Our first artist to participate is Elizabeth Zvonar, be sure to check out her exhibition “The Future is Coming Every Day” at the Art Gallery at Evergreen. Q: In 2016, you completed a residency in Brooklyn, where you read the newest translation of Simone de Beauvoir's “The Second Sex”. Can you talk about this experience and how it directly influenced, “The Future is Coming Every Day”? A: What was particularly interesting to me about the 2009 translation by Constance Borde and Sheila Malovany-Chevallier was that they translated the entirety of the original manuscript, putting back in what had been edited out and breathing life into the original text, paying attention to the nuance and richness of de Beauvoir’s words. The original context for the 1952 translation done by Howard M. Parshley was that it was commissioned because it was understood to be a racy exposé of the female gender and sexuality. In fact, the text traces a historical trajectory of how the female sex is socialized, illustrating how this sets up a bias in terms of goals, accomplishments and contributions that women have made throughout history, clearly questioning how women have been valued and the undermining of our intellectual capabilities due to a biological difference in relation to men throughout our collective history.
