About the Program:
Juliane Foronda is a Filipina-Canadian artist, writer, and researcher. During her residency, she researched the board game archive at Ottawa’s Canadian Museum of History. From there, she created NOTES ON PLAY, a text-based installation scattering extracted board game phrases throughout the city of Ottawa. Through this, the city becomes similar to a game itself, with the public as participants.
Join Juliane Foronda in conversation with Chloé Ouellet-Riendeau, Assistant Curator of Sport History at the Canadian Museum of History to discuss NOTES ON PLAY. This artist talk will cover the privilege of nostalgia, archive accessibility, the responsibility of public art, and how social values are reflected in board games. Plus, pick up a NOTES ON PLAY postcard to take home and use.
About the Artist:
Predominantly through object, intervention and text, Juliane Foronda's practice is invested in notions of radical care, feminist hospitality, and traditions of gathering. Juliane received her MA in Fine Arts from Listaháskóli Íslands/Iceland University of the Arts, and her BA in Studio Art from the University of Guelph. Juliane is based between Toronto and Glasgow.
