    About the Artists

    Jaspal Birdi (B.1988, Toronto) is a Canadian artist who combines photography and painting by experimenting with contemporary technologies. Birdi’s interests explore how concepts of reality and virtuality influence accepted norms of freedom and security. Through programming, print, and paint, her practice filters and reconstructs a blurred cycle of virtual and physical actions. Birdi completed her BFA in Drawing and Painting from OCAD University 2010, a Museum Internship at The Peggy Guggenheim Collection 2011, a Masters in Arts Management from Istituto Europeo di Design (IED) 2013, and a Specialization in Curating Contemporary Art from Venice School of Curatorial Studies 2016.

    Faune Ybarra’s project touches on her eagerness to find a sense of belonging as a diasporic artist. She was born between Oaxaca and Mexico City, and then moved to St. John’s for four years before moving to Vancouver where she now resides and works. In the process of developing her project, she coined the term “diasporic gestures”, which she describes as “actions to ground oneself to the currently inhabited land”. She holds a BFA in Visual Arts from Memorial University of Newfoundland and an MFA in Interdisciplinary Studies from Simon Fraser University.

    About the Curator

She also holds a Masters in Arts Management from the Istituto Europeo di Design in Florence and Rome, Italy (2014). Her curatorial projects have been exhibited in Vancouver, and Manila, Philippines.

    Presented in partnership with the Capture Festival, City of Richmond Public Art and the Canada Line Public Art Program.
