Please join us for the second Twilight Hour talk of the spring 2020 series on Tuesday, Jan. 28 at 6pm, with Vancouver artist, writer, and activist Sharona Franklin.
Sharona Franklin (b.1987) is a Vancouver-based multidisciplinary artist, writer, and activist. Franklin’s diverse practice — which includes but is not limited to sculptures, edibles, and books — examines the bio-ethic and social responsibility of treating, educating, and living with disabilities. Much of her practice is disseminated and documented through social media platforms that have reached thousands online, which include @paid.technologies, @star_seeded, @hot.crip, and @disabled_personals. Through these varied platforms and material interventions, Franklin’s work disseminates their personal mythology of disability, gender, class, bio-citizenship, and botany.
Recent exhibitions include those at Unit 17, Vancouver; G44 Center for Contemporary Photography, Toronto; New Image Art Gallery Los Angeles, CA; and Flux Factory, New York, NY. Recent publications include Injustice in Biopharm, 2019, Cassandra Press and Rental Bod, 2016, Peace Library Publications.
All talks take place at 6pm in Painting and Drawing Room D4384. All are welcome. Seating is limited. First come, first seated!
