NOURISH: Virtual Artist Talks, Interviews & Panel Discussions

  • Discussion
  • April 27, 2023

    During the NOURISH exhibition, January 22 – April 3, 2022, the gallery hosted many online programs related to the exhibition.  Panel Discussions revolved around ideas of nourishment in its many forms, from personal or historical stories of family and food inspired by Jane Wong’s works, to ways we find solace in nature and more internal forms of nourishment as discussed by artist duo Mizzonk.

    Videos were made possible by funding from the Richmond Has Heart program.
