Event Description

In partnership with Canadian Art and to mark the launch of its spring issue “Dirty Words,” Open Space will host artist Divya
Mehra and writer Amy Fung to present Difficult People on Thursday 22 March at 7:30 p.m.

As a public experiment and ongoing private conversation, Difficult People is artist Divya Mehra (Scorpio) and writer Amy Fung (Scorpio) embarking on a series of public readings that trace their respective, and at times, overlapping experiences of living and working in the Canadian Prairies. Specifically, Mehra’s performative lecture explores memory, race, death, and the service industry in a series of non-linear short stories and poetics. The performance, as well as her overall practice, asks “how do we exist within the crushing indifference of our day to day?” Sharing similar intentions of re-examining the mundane violence of white supremacy, Fung will be reading an excerpt from a new work in progress, Before I was a critic, I was a human being.

The performance will be followed by a conversation between Mehra and Fung. Copies of Canadian Art will also be on sale.
