Join filmmaker Karin Lee, text-based artist Anahita Jamali Rad, and writers Chelene Knight and Zoe Mix (and check out our newest print issue!) for the first of a two-part series in SUM Gallery’s inaugural exhibition.

About the presenters:

Anahita Jamali Rad is currently based in Tio’tia:ke on the traditional territory of the Kanien’kehá:ka. Her work is primarily textual and explores materiality, history, affect, ideology, violence, class, collectivity, desire, place, and displacement. She has published a few chapbooks and one full-length collection entitled for love and autonomy (Talonbooks, 2016). She is currently working on an apparel-based poetics project called Fear of Intimacy.

Chelene Knight is a Vancouver born-and-raised graduate of the Writer’s Studio at Simon Fraser University. In addition to being a workshop facilitator for teens, she is also a literary event organizer, host, and seasoned panelist. She has been published in various Canadian and American literary magazines, and her work is widely anthologized. Chelene is currently the managing editor at Room magazine, and the 2018 Programming Director for the Growing Room Festival. Braided Skin, her first book (Mother Tongue Publishing, 2015), has given birth to numerous writing projects including her second book, the memoir Dear Current Occupant (Book*hug, 2018).

Karin Lee’s films examine gender, race, culture, and identity in Canada and Asia. Made in China, about adoption and identity, received a Gemini in 2001. She received the Mayor’s Arts Award for Film and New Media in 2014, and the Spotlight Award from Vancouver Women in Film in 2017. She taught film and history at the University of British Columbia, and humanities in Simon Fraser University’s Asia-Canada Program. She was born and raised in Vancouver, BC.

Zoe Mix is a young Métis writer from the Seattle area. She recently graduated from the University of British Columbia where she earned a BFA in Creative Writing, along with a Bachelor of Voice Performance. She enjoys writing poetry and drawing comics.
