Artist Salon Webinar with Puya Khalili and Charlotte Wall

  • Artist Salon
  • RAG@Home
  • Saturday, June 26, 2021

    1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

    Above: Puya Khalili and Charlotte Wall

    Vancouver-based artists Puya Khalili and Charlotte Wall will share their experiences of working together to develop various public art projects that incorporate several disciplines of visual art, design and architecture to create multi-faceted and provocative artworks for the public realm.  In the fall of 2021, the artists will install Typhas at Hollybridge Way in Richmond. This landmark public artwork, which is inspired by the Fraser River ecology, will enhance the culturally and ecologically rich place and contribute in making a vibrant, healthy and sustainable city.

    The artists will discuss their working process in applying, developing, and designing public art works to offer advice and inspiration for artists interested in expanding their own art practice.
    A Q&A session will follow the artists presentation for participants to interact online in real-time.

    About the Artists:

    A multi-disciplinary artist and designer, Puya Khalili’s work straddles the lines between the fields of visual art, architecture, music and film. Within the realm of sculpture, Puya’s work creates a symbiosis between the natural and fictional worlds through public art projects and spatial interventions. www.puya.ca/ 

    Over the past two decades, Charlotte Wall has established an art practice that ranges from stand-alone works meant for private art galleries to scaled up sculptures placed in the broader public sphere. Primarily a sculptor and installation artist, Charlotte Wall has also worked on a number of public art projects with several pieces installed in British Columbia. www.charlottewall.com/

     

    In response to the current global health pandemic, we have launched our public programs online to encourage dialogue and connection in the era of physical distancing. Programs are currently live-streamed via the Zoom platform, and may also be viewed at a later date as videos on the RAG@Home video page.

    The Artist Salon Series features art professionals leading inspirational artist talks and professional development for visual artists each month from February to November.

    This program is supported by the City of Richmond Arts and Culture Grant.
