Opening reception of two new exhibitions at the Richmond Art Gallery: Cindy Mochizuki - Cave to Dream and Jon Sasaki - We First Need a Boat for the Rising Tide to Lift Us.
Join the artists in the gallery to celebrate the opening of their exhibitions.
Cindy Mochizuki is a Vancouver-based artist that creates multi-media installation, audio fiction, performance, animation, and drawings. Her works explore the manifestation of story and its relationship to site-specificity, invisible histories, archives, and memory work. Her artistic process moves back and forth between multiple sites of cultural production considering language, chance, improvisation and engaging communities. She has exhibited, performed and screened her work in Canada, US, and Asia.
Toronto-based artist Jon Sasaki brings performance, video, object and installation into a framework where expectation and outcome never align, generating a simultaneous sense of pathos and fun. His work employs reason-based approaches reminiscent of conceptual art while investigating romantic subjects; in this juxtaposition, Sasaki creates humorous, self-exhaustive systems caught in cycles of trial and error.
Richmond Art Gallery
The only public Gallery in Richmond, the Richmond Art Gallery (RAG) is a municipal Gallery supported by the non-profit Richmond Art Gallery Association (RAGA), a charitable organization. In operation since 1980, the Gallery presents curated exhibitions by British Columbia, national and international artists, maintains a permanent collection, and presents innovative and diverse programming for children, youth, and adults. Since 1992, the Gallery has been located in the Richmond Cultural Centre, and has evolved into a well-regarded professional contemporary art gallery that was awarded a Richmond Arts Award for leadership in 2010. RAGA supports the gallery through membership, fundraising, and advocacy.
