NEW Rungh Magazine, Volume 8, No 3

Rungh is Canada’s leading online platform which focuses on creative work by Indigenous, Black and People of Colour (IBPOC) identified artists. Since 1992, Rungh Magazine has featured multidisciplinary, unique and opinionated views and reviews. Subscription is FREE. Join our mailing list.

In this issue, the Rungh platform features the new Komagata Maru: Pasts, Presents, Futures Initiative which links histories from 1992 to present. The new content explores troubling questions about a mural at the Vancouver Mural Festival and what is a “fact”. The responsibilities of journalists are also raised in A Response to The Tyee About the Taike-sye’ye Mural by filmmaker Ali Kazimi.

Speculation is the focus of this issue, and it includes an excerpt from poet Larissa Lai’s Iron Goddess of Mercy and an in-depth conversation with Rebecca Peng in A Rush of Language. The art work accompanying the conversation is by the artist Sun Xun courtesy of the Vancouver Art Gallery.

David Garneau reflects on a moment with Tibetan monk, Losang Samten, as he explores the changing term “Indigenous”, in his new Column for Rungh.

What does it mean to meditate on solitude during these pandemic times, find out in Phinder Dulai’s review of Sprawl – the time it took us to forget, poetry by Manahil Bandukwala and Conyer Clayton.

Rungh is also thrilled to announce a new partnership with the Indigenous Curatorial Collective/ Collectif Des Commissaires Autochtones. With this ongoing relationship, the two organizations will be working together to create publishing opportunities for ICCA Community Members while highlighting exhibitions and programming by Indigenous artists.

Speculation, fact, remembering and forgetting, all in this issue of Rungh. Why are you not on our mailing list?
