Exhibition Closing Event with Reconciliation Lethbridge

September 15, 01:00pm - 05:00pm

Exhibition Closing Event for Sunlight by Fireside: The Ash Annals in partnership with Reconciliation Lethbridge  

Admission by donation

Sunday, September 15 is the final day of Kapwani Kiwanga’s Sunlight by Fireside: The Ash Annals. This work creates opportunities for dialogue and sharing, inviting viewers to engage with her installation by handling and transporting the soil in gallery. The ultimate aim of Kiwanga’s work is to help people reflect on the colonial experience as a whole and to explore the gestures of giving and returning. 

The SAAG is honoured to partner with Reconciliation Lethbridge for this closing event. We will host guided public tours of the current exhibitions from 1-2 PM PM, followed by a SAAG Cinema screening of Alanis Obomsawin’s landmark 50th film, Our People Will Be Healed at 2:30 PM. 

At 4:30 PM guests will enjoy light refreshments followed by the final earth being returned to Galt Gardens by dignitaries from Reconciliation Lethbridge Advisory Committee.
