Riverview Exhibit Opening Reception
Thursday, September 28, 2023
Please join us to celebrate the opening of our exhibit Riverview: an artist's point of view.
Artists Nadine Flagel, Haley Perry, and Lolu Oyedele with contributions by Coquitlam Heritage team members, Markus Fahrner and Naomi Fong approach themes of mental health, physical separation, and the history of the Riverview Hospital through a range of media including illustration, reclaimed textiles and drawing. The artists' works engage with individual Riverview objects within the CH collection, and the history of Riverview to create an intimate approach to mental health and the physical space of the hospital. Riverview Hospital is located on ?miq????el? (Pronounced Suh-mEE-kwuh EL-uh) within the ancestral and core territory of k?ik?????m.
Meet the artists and chat with them about their work. Refreshments will be served.
Free. No Registration Required. (All Ages)
