_____________________________________________

For Lauren, visual art is a way of grappling with the complexities of a terrifying and beautiful world as an Indigenous woman whose existential, emotional, physical and creative freedom depends upon the world’s ability to expand its understanding of justice, humanity and decolonial love. Lauren’s art, therefore, reflects the spectrum of her personal, social, political and spiritual preoccupations in a way that is always gesturing toward, or grappling with the possibilities of peace. Lauren will be showing her work alongside curated musical performances.

Performances:

Jayden Paz
Never have folk and blues met in a sweeter union as now. With just a guitar and soaring vocals, Jayden brings emotions to life while making you tap your feet. Drowned in sweeping melodies, his lyrics both move and challenge the listener. Jayden represents the very best of talent and resilience that Edmonton can offer.

Family Injera
Mustafa Rafiq is Family Injera — tending to forgotten family roots through sound. Blending traditional guitar style with spiritual field recordings cloaked in abrasive ambient noise, meditative psychedelia is born.

Jordan Koe
Emerging Tetlit Gwich'in sound artist Jordan Koe debuted this summer creating Nâsipewin for found fest 2018. Using field recordings of spaces in T6, Jordan aims to capture the sound relationship Indigenous people have to land and it's evolution since colonization. Using those sounds Jordan creates loud, violent, and beautiful sound art that forces the listener to reconcile it's relationship to the land.
