The annual three-part Lulu Series: Art in the City explores the relationship between art and our urban environment. Artists, planning experts, design experts and the public from across Metro Vancouver are invited to attend the following three free inspirational evening talks in Richmond:

  • Talk #1: The Blue Cabin –Year One by Barbara Cole
    Date: Thursday, March 19
    Time: 7 p.m.
    Location: City Hall, 6911 No. 3 Road

    Barbara Cole, Blue Cabin Committee member, will share the history of the Blue Cabin—from its humble beginnings as the home of North Shore Maritime labourers to its storied past as the creative home of Vancouver artists Al Neil and Carole Itter, to its restoration and first year of programming as a floating artist residency in False Creek’s Plaza of Nations. This talk will be preceded by a short performance by members from the Canadian YC Chinese Orchestra.

  • Talk #2: On Commemoration by Joseph Fry
    Date: Thursday, April 16
    Time: 7 p.m.
    Location: City Hall, 6911 No. 3 Road

    Through his studio’s work for the Steveston Nikkei Memorial, the Canadian Navy Monument in Ottawa, Yi Fao Park in New Westminster and various design competitions and unrealized works, Joseph Fry, principal at Hapa Collaborative, will review some of the lessons he has learned in pursuing commemorative design work through his career, and shed some light on how public art and memorialization in the public sphere is changing in the age of reconciliation. This talk will be preceded by a short performance by Jodo Shin Taiko.

  • Talk #3: What’s Out There? by Rebecca Belmore
    Date: Thursday, May 7
    Time: 7 p.m.
    Location: City Hall, 6911 No. 3 Road

    In response to the question posed in the title of her presentation, Rebecca Belmore quips, “I will go take a look and we can talk about it when I see you.” Join this inquisitive journey with the internationally recognized multidisciplinary artist and member of the Lac Seul (Anishinaabe) First Nation. Rooted in the political and social realities of Indigenous communities, Belmore’s works make evocative connections between bodies, land and language. This talk will be preceded by a short performance by Theresa “Keliya” Warbus.

Talks are free to the public with limited seating. Visit www.richmond.ca/luluseries for details on how to reserve seats.
