Connecting Worlds: a collaborative response to Shuvinai Ashoona’s Mapping Worlds

BJ Lecours
Artist and educator B.J. Lecours will facilitate the creation of a collaborative public drawing installation where visitors are invited to respond to Shuvinai Ashoona’s fantastical Mapping Worlds exhibition through drawing. This collaborative creation will draw on themes, images, and understandings of Ashoona’s worlds, conversing with them visually and creating an original response through drawing. Lecours invites the public to draw their own worlds, considering: How would you represent the connections in your life? Who are the characters in your world? How does it feel? What is the blueprint for its future?
Sketchbooks and pencils will be available in the Ashoona exhibition and in the Gallery's recharge lounge for the duration of the exhibition. Lecours will assemble public drawings on the wall and continue drawing on them, building connections between contributions and imagining a world of her own.
Lecours will be in the Gallery Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, 1-3:30 p.m. from July 25–August 11. A Talk and Draw launching this project is happening on July 25 at 7:00 p.m. in the Gallery.
