Please join us Thursday, Feb 29, at 12:30 pm for an artist’s talk with Sara Kahn. The talk will take place in room D1400, Integrated Motion Capture Studio, on the ground floor, close to the east entrance to the building.

Sara Khan is known for her explorations of magic realism and the blurred lines between fact and fiction or the real and imagined through watercolour paintings, textiles, and ceramics. Interested in how something grotesque and seductive can converge to become immensely captivating, she has developed a language distinctly her own.

Aside from her solo show at The Reach Gallery Museum, Abbotsford, BC (2021) select group exhibitions include “Let Me Take You There” at The Doris McCarthy Gallery, Scarborough, ON (2023) and “Open Encounters”, Artco Gallery, Berlin (2022). She has been artist-in-Residence at The Burrard Arts Foundation (2021). She was also commissioned by Simon Fraser University to create work for the 50th Anniversary celebration of their Department of Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies (2020). She was also the featured artist for The Indian Summer Festival (2019).

Khan holds a Bachelor of Fine Art from the National College of Arts, Lahore. She grew up in Lahore, Pakistan and now lives and works in Vancouver, Canada.

Presented by the Audain Faculty of Art, Drawing, at Emily Carr University of Art and Design.
