Artist Talk: Emanuel Licha | Friday 26 January
Join us on Friday 26 January at 7:00 pm for a free artist talk with Emanuel Licha to mark the opening of his solo exhibition, Now Have A Look At This Machine. Licha's presentation will be followed by the Opening Reception for this exhibition - everyone is welcome.
Artist and filmmaker Emanuel Licha was born in Montréal in 1971. He studied urban geography and then the visual arts. His work in film, video installation and photography focuses on the role of architecture in the representation of conflicts, leading to a reading of the features of the urban landscape as social, historical and political signs. His recent projects investigate the means by which traumatic and violent events are being witnessed and observed. Licha’s exhibition Now Have A Look At This Machine was held, before its presentation at the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery, at two other venues: The Rooms Provincial Art Gallery in St. John’s and the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal. Some of his other solo exhibitions have been held in Québec at the Musée régional de Rimouski, as well as SBC Gallery and Galerie B-312 in Montréal; in Europe at LOOP 09, Barcelona; Galerie Cortex Athletico, Bordeaux; Canadian Cultural Centre, Paris; Careof, Milan; EXIT – Institute for Contemporary Art, Peja; and at Ex Teresa Arte Actual, Mexico City.
