Arts Commons is proud to welcome the first artist to pilot their PREAMP Initiative: Iman Bukhari.
Iman is the founding member and CEO of our organization. She is using the one-week short-term residency at Arts Commons to create a multimedia art project titled WOC: A Sisterhood. This project is about the complicated relationship between feminine beauty, identity, and race (WOC meaning Women of Colour and also a play-on words of WOKE). This project builds on Iman's passion for social justice and the complex intersections of race. For her, this experiment is “about showing women of colour who are un-apologetically themselves… because it takes guts to be yourself.”
Join us on Sunday, April 22 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. in the Arts Learning Centre at Arts Commons for an informal open house, where you can see what Iman has been working on during the week. This is a FREE event, no tickets or RSVP is required.
