Interpreting [Interrupting] Youth: Youth Guided Tour, Screening + Discussion at Plug In ICA

  • Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art 460 Portage Avenue Winnipeg Canada (map)

Youth Guided Tour:  2pm
Screening & Discussion: 3pm 

On Saturday, February 17, 2018 discover our current exhibition, Skeena Reece: Sweetgrass and Honey through the interpretive lens of five youth.

Starting at 2pm, participants of the fourth edition of our Interpreting [Interrupting] Youth [IIY] program, Elia Ruiz-Fuertes-Holt, Andriy Kramar, Omid Moterassed, Crista Ordonez and Youth Mentor, Niko Lapierre will offer our first ever guided youth tour, before presenting a short interpretive video produced by them in collaboration with Plug In ICA, Just TV and the Broadway Neighborhood Center.

The screening offers a visual reflection of the youth’s collective and individual experience of Sweetgrass and Honey, and marks the culmination of an intensive four weeks of meeting, working, and thinking together about the exhibition; and about video as an interpretive mode. For this iteration of the program, participants had the opportunity to see the work as it was being installed, and speak directly with Reece about her process, and intentions.

The youth tour will begin at 2pm, followed a short reception. The screening and panel discussion with IIY participants is moderated by Assistant Curator Sarah Nesbitt, and will begin at 3pm. Everyone welcome! Snacks and refreshments will be served. More info here.
