Meet the Artist: Olga Saavedra Montes De Oca

23 February
6:30 pm
8:00 pm

Free

Join us for an informal online conversation with our current exhibiting artist Olga Saavedra Montes De Oca.

Olga will be joined by Emile Devereaux, Senior Lecturer in Digital Media at the University of Sussex and Maddy Kelly, ONCA’s Communications Manager to discuss the themes within the exhibition in more detail. There will also be the opportunity for audience Q&A.

By reflecting on contemporary images of transgender individuals in relation to their family, the artist seeks to query a focus on gender transition as a contemporary, individual process, to re-locate it in personal and family histories. The focus is on the heteronormative family as a space where gendered differences take place.

Read more about the exhibition here.

This event is offered on a donation basis with free tickets also available to those that need them.

_______________

Image description: A photograph by artist Olga Saavedra Montes de Oca of an outdoor scene. The viewer looks up at a closeup scene of denim jeans with rips in the legs and a clear tarpaulin sheet hanging on a washing line that is propped up by a long thin piece of wood, surrounded by trees. Clear blue skies peek through the leaves of the large stubby palm trees and taller native trees, making the tarpaulin appear baby blue whilst keeping the scene darker and intimate. There is a top section on a wall visible at the bottom of the photograph. A pair of navy Adidas trainers with three yellow stripes and white soles are sitting on the wall along with a dirty, plastic football and a pair of sun damaged orangey rubber gloves. Some small green foliage is sprouting from the wall seen in the bottom left corner of the photograph to the left of the trainers.
