Join the Alberta Craft Council for an informative talk with artist Shona Rae about Converse Subversives.
In her exhibition Converse Subversives, Calgary artist Shona Rae uses narrative, figurative sculptures to engage traditional myths, fairy tales, folklore, ancient artifacts and personal history. Rae strives to shift perspectives by exploring how societies old and new deal with social inequalities, gender identification, ageism, rape, plague and political upheavals. By juxtaposing the known, the unknown, the precious and the mundane to probe the human psyche for memories, dreams and personal tales, she seeks a synergy that blurs the boundaries between jewellery and sculpture, metal and textiles, art and fine craft.
This online event is free to the public and open to everyone.
