Workshop, Astrida Neimanis
Join us for an evening of collective reading and listening to waves, shorelines, currents and shoals. Alternating between listening to sound pieces and reading aloud together various short selections of texts, our bodies will become tidal pools, seashell echoes, and transmitters of new, collective pelagic frequencies.
Astrida Neimanis (joining us via Zoom) works at the intersection of feminism and environmental change, and writes mostly about water, weather and bodies. Her most recent book is Bodies of Water: Posthuman Feminist Phenomenology. She is Associate Professor and Canada Research Chair in Feminist Environmental Humanities at UBC Okanagan, on unceded Syilx territories in Canada.
This event is part of the Call the Waves public programme. Call the Waves is a group exhibition and public programme which emerges from interconnected intimacies with different bodies of water, bringing together new works from artists, musicians, and historians Alia Mossalam, Bint Mbareh, Fern Thomas, Kandace Siobhan Walker, Maya Al Khaldi, and Noureddine Ezarraf. The project is co-curated by QANAT and SWAY, held collaboratively by Francesca Masoero, Louise Hobson, and Shayma Nader. Visit Call the Waves at Chapter Gallery Tuesday - Sunday, 11am - 5pm.
All Call the Waves events are free, but booking is essential. Find more information and links below.
