Zadie Xa

Wednesday, April 29, 2020 - 7:30 pm

Programmed by Tobin Gibson

A free virtual screening from April 29 through 5 May

DIM Cinema is pleased to present a free virtual program of works by artist Zadie Xa. This program introduces video pieces by the artist made between 2016 and 2019, including recent work shot during visits to Vancouver. Through performance, video, painting, and textiles, Xa explores the overlapping and conflation of cultures that inform self-conceptualized identities and notions of self. Xa, born and raised in Vancouver, currently lives in London, UK. She received an MA in Painting from the Royal College of Art in 2014 and a BFA from Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in 2007.

The program will begin with a conversation between guest curator Tobin Gibson and Zadie Xa.

The virtual screening link will go live from The Cinematheque's website on April 29.
