Grand River / River Grand: Chronicles and Conversations
Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery, 101 Queen Street North, Kitchener, ON
Tuesday June 29, 2010, 7:00pm
What part does the Grand River play in the imagination of today’s residents of Kitchener, and how can sense of place translate into artwork? Join photographer Stefan Rose for an evening talk about his creative process, and how conversations with residents and engagement with the landscape can reveal grander artistic insights, using large-format photographs and poems. Rose will describe how temporality, psychogeography, seriality, and beauty coincide in his artwork, in relation to his ongoing project Grand River: Grand Conversations, and in context with the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery’s ongoing series River Grand Chronicles, this year featuring the art of Gwen McGregor. This is the second in a series of public talks by City of Kitchener’s 2010 Artist-In-Residence, Stefan Rose.
