Offsite Book Sales – Vivek Shraya Heller Lecture

May 15 @ 7:00 pm

At the ANNEX Theatre, 823 Seymour Street.

Join artist, writer and musician Vivek Shraya for the annual Heller Lecture, where she will delve into how personal narrative relates to image-making, visibility, gender identity and cultural tradition. During her lecture, Shraya will move in and out of autobiography, song and storytelling as she shares recent bodies of work that provide a glimpse into her multi-faceted practice.

Shraya’s work centres around an expansive conceptualization of “gender,” cultural belonging and tradition. It also serves as an offering to anyone who has been misgendered, made to feel not feminine enough, or struggles to find home in a language that resists complexity.

The 2019 Heller Lecture is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Moving Still: Performative Photography in India, which features artists who participate in their own photo-narratives, positioning themselves at the centre of social and political inquiry.
