Join artist Sara Graham and curator Nadja Pelkey for an artist talk and guided tour of Graham’s current exhibition, Sara Graham: Cut-outs, Offcuts, and Cast-offs. Her work explores ideas and issues of the contemporary city, looking at the connections and disconnections between the built environment and the landscape it occupies. Much of her work is inspired by the way she experiences the city through walking or using public transit. There is room to think while moving through a city, to notice, to wonder.

Meet the Artist: Sara Graham

Sara Graham studied at University of Guelph (MFA, 2006) and Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (BFA, 1997). She has produced a collection of diverse bodies of work that share a concern with the images, issues and ideas that surround and make up the cities we live in or those that we imagine. Her works have been widely exhibited across Canada. She was recently commissioned to create the facade for a building as part of the Gordie Howe International Bridge Project, set to open in 2024.
