Galvanized Suns features artworks that re-imagine pasts, presents and futures through narratives of diaspora outside of Western hegemony by artists, designers, performers and writers who contribute to Caribbean and Latin American diaspora culture in Canada.
The event features fourteen artists from across Canada including: Aisha and Andalah Ali, Ana Luisa Bernardez, Michaela Bridgemohan, Jonathan Chan-Choong, Antonio Coello, Luis Navarro Del Angel, Roya DelSol, Kanika Gordon, Queen Kukoyi, Jean-Pierre Marchant, Olivia McGilchrist, Marc Ngui, Kofi Oduro, and Faune Ybarra.
Drawing from the roaring beats of rainstorms against galvanized rooves of the Caribbean and Latin American landscape, Galvanized Suns aims to gather and galvanize voices from this diaspora in Canada to critically and creatively reimagine pasts, presents, and futures beyond xenophobic, Western-centric systems of oppression.
Galvanized Suns is a three day event centered around a media program. The first day is an internet live stream of net art, video art, sound art, performance art, creative or critical writing, readings, and animations. This portion of the program is being re-streamed for the subsequent days of the event. The second day features a curator talkback in which Diasporic Futurisms will discuss the programming and concepts behind Galvanized Suns. The third day of Galvanized Suns presents a talk back series with artists featured in the media event. Each event relates back to the media art featured in the live stream to build entanglements between art, literature, and activism.
Galvanized Sunss is a three day live-stream media event organized by the curatorial collective Diasporic Futurisms in partnership with Subtle Technologies. Galvanized Suns is the first of an ongoing project exploring diverse facets of transformative practice.
