Oxygen welcomes December’s artist in residence

The Oxygen Art Centre welcomes NorthWest Coast multimedia artist Bracken Hanuse Corlett as Artist in Residence for the month of December.

Corlett hails from the Wuikinuxv and Klahoose Nations where he draws much of his inspiration from in making his art. Corlett moves between a broad range of new media work from performance pieces, sound installations, video work and more traditional painting and sculpture/carving.

Corlett’s theme for his residency is Wuulhu — a salish expression meaning to “fuse together.” Corlett is one of the founders of the Vancouver Indigenous Media Arts Festival. He is a graduate of the University of Emily Carr and has been awarded several awards for his work including the British Columbia Arts Council Aboriginal Arts and Development award.

While Corlett is on residency at Oxygen he will give an artist talk on December 5 at 7 p.m., and a two-day workshop that will happen on Saturday, December 7 and 14 from 1 to 4 p.m. To find out more about the workshops and to ensure your space in the workshop come to the artist talk. The workshops are free, but space is limited and sign up is on a first-come basis. Participants must be able to attend both sessions.

Both the talk and workshops take place at the Oxygen Art Cente located at 320 Vernon Street (alley entrance).

Oxygen Art Centre gratefully acknowledges the support of the Columbia Basin Trust, British Columbia Arts Council and the Canada Council for the Arts in making this Residency possible.
