Artist Talk: Zachary Ayotte and Ted Kerr
Join artists Zachary Ayotte and Ted Kerr at Latitude 53 for a conversation about the disappearance of queer spaces in Edmonton. Drawing on Ayotte’s current exhibition, BAMF, the conversation will touch on the queer history, transformation and the body.
Thursday, April 18th, 2019, 6 p.m. – 7 p.m.
Latitude 53, 10242 – 106 Street NW, Edmonton
Latitude 53 is an accessible space
Zachary Ayotte’s work is interested in bodies and their ability to contain complex and conflicting histories, both personal and social. Through photographic processes, he explores how we engage across space. Grounded in the body’s relationship to uncertainty, his work reveals a pervading tension between the mutable aspects of individuals and their environment. He has had solo exhibitions at Latitude 53 and SNAP-Society of Northern Alberta Print Artists in Edmonton, AB, as well as a duo exhibition with Nulle Part at the Art Gallery of Alberta.
