Art for Lunch with Farihah Aliyah Shah
Postponed (Please see our notice addressing COVID-19 here)
Please join us for a talk by artist Farihah Aliyah Shah, 2019 winner of the John Hartman Award. Farihah Aliyah Shah is a contemporary artist originally from Edmonton, Alberta now based in Bradford and Toronto, Ontario. She holds a BHRM from York University and a BFA in Photography with a minor in Integrated Media from OCAD University. Utilizing photography, video and sound installation, her practice explores identity formation through the colonial gaze, race, land and collective memory. She seeks to challenge the lack of representation of disenfranchised bodies in the photographic cannon and representational art, encouraging others to take agency of their image. She is a member of Gallery 44 and Women Photograph and has exhibited internationally in North America, Asia and Europe.
