The Artist’s Voice
2022 Free Online Lecture Series
Thursday, September 15, 1 – 2 p.m.


Join us in welcoming Ed Pien, who will speaking about his current exhibition (June 2022-June 2023) at the Art Gallery of Ontario. “Ed Pien’s new exhibition Ed Pien: Present: Past/Future, is about memory, ageing, domestic space, and so much more. The exhibition is a reflection on the passage of time as told by the people who have lived it. Toronto-based artist Ed Pien has been meeting twice a year with a group of elders in San Agustin, a suburban neighbourhood of Havana, Cuba. Combining audio, video, photography and furniture into an immersive, multi-sensory environment, PRESENT: PAST/FUTURE poignantly weaves together stories shared by the elders and moments captured by Pien since 2014.”
