Opening Reception: How To Be 57 | Friday 23 March

Join us to celebrate the opening of Lucie Chan's new exhibition, How To Be 57. Free admission.


Everyone is invited to attend the Opening Reception of How To Be 57, an exhibition that marks the culmination of her month-long residency at KWAG. Her drawing-based installation practice focuses on such themes as cultural confusion, the transient nature of human connections, and shape-shifting identity. In her art practice, she often works one-on-one with members of the public to create a diverse range of works inspired by their stories.

Lucie Chan (b. Guyana) teaches at Emily Carr University of Art and Design. She holds a BFA with distinction from the Alberta College of Art and Design and a MFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University with a specialization in drawing. She has shown nationally in various group and solo exhibitions and has undertaken artist residencies at ARTerra in Lobão da Beira, Portugal; the Ross Creek Centre for the Arts in Canning, Nova Scotia; Banff Centre for the Arts in Banff, Alberta; Museum London in London, Ontario; the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia and Mount Saint Vincent University Art Gallery in Halifax, Nova Scotia; and the Foreman Art Gallery in Sherbrooke, Quebec. In addition to receiving numerous provincial and national grants, she has been long-listed twice for the Sobey Art Award (2005, 2010).
