About this Event

Manuel Axel Strain will open and close their exhibition with a live performance on the shores of Bedford Channel. Due to COVID-19 social distancing protocols you are asked to register for this free event.

The Fort Gallery will be open from 5:30-6:15 prior to the performance so you can view the exhibition. You may meet at the gallery at 6:15 to walk to the site (about 10 mins) or meet on McMillan Island. Check back here prior to the event for detailed location information.

Manuel Axel Strain is a 2-spirit interdisciplinary artist with Musqueam/Simpcw/Syilx heritage based in the unceded territory of the Katzie/Kwantlen peoples. Although they have attended Emily Carr University of Art + Design they are more appreciative of the knowledge they have gained from their mother, father, siblings, cousins, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, grandparents, and ancestors. Strain uses their lived experience as a source of agency to investigate different ways of healing and knowing.

Invested with personal and political histories, their practice includes painting, photography, sculpture, performance, and installation, through which mental and spiritual well-being take paramount significance.
