Join us online for our Visual Art Forums talk with artist Sonja Ahlers and curator Godfre Leung on Wednesday Sept 20, 2023. The talk coincides Sonja Ahlers' exhibition at the Richmond Art Gallery. All talks are open to the public and all are welcome to attend.

Sonja Ahlers is a visual artist and poet based in Victoria, on the unceded territories of the lək̓ ʷəŋən (Lekwungen) speaking peoples, now known as the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations.

Since the early 90s, Ahlers has worked primarily in book and book-adjacent formats, in a medium that she calls visual poetry. She is the author of Temper, Temper and Fatal Distraction (Insomniac Press, 1998 and 2004), and The Selves (Drawn & Quarterly, 2010), and was a key contributor to Rookie Mag from 2011 to 2015. Swan Song (Conundrum Press, 2021) is Ahlers’ most recent artist book. A major exhibition survey of her art practice titled Classification Crisis will be presented in Fall 2023 at Richmond Art Gallery.
