Art in the Spotlight: Jagdeep Raina

Tuesday August 11, 4 pm

Join artist Jagdeep Raina for a conversation with the AGO's Devyani Saltzman about his interdisciplinary practice that spans drawing, textiles, writing, and, more recently, video animation, photography and ceramics. In his work, Raina engages with personal and public archives and mines for fissures in representation.

Jagdeep Raina is an artist and writer based in Guelph Ontario, where he teaches in the department of Fine Arts and Music at the University of Guelph. Raina holds an MFA in painting from the Rhode Island School of Design and has been an artist in residence at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in Madison Maine, the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown Massachusetts, the Camden Arts Centre/Slade School of Fine Art in London, England and the Miriam Dawood School of Art and Design in Lahore, Pakistan.

Devyani Saltzman is a Canadian writer and curator with a deep interest in relevant, multidisciplinary, programming at the intersection between art, ideas and social change. She is the Director of Public Programming at the AGO, and the former Director of Literary Arts at the Banff Centre, the first woman and first woman of colour in that role, as well as a Founding Curator of Luminato, North America's largest multi arts festival. Her work has appeared in The Globe and Mail, National Post, The Atlantic and Tehelka, India's weekly of arts and investigative journalism. She sits on the boards of the Writers’ Trust of Canada and SummerWorks Performance Festival, and has been a juror for the National Magazine Awards, Canada Council for the Arts, Ontario Arts Council and The Hilary Weston Writers' Trust Prize for Nonfiction.
