About the Event
Art in the time of Covid
Join us in conversation with visual artist, Sandeep Johal, as we explore the role of the artist in society. Sandeep will share some of her work and her process as we discuss the artist’s response to political and social upheaval, and the role art can play as a vehicle for change and connection in uncertain times.
Sandeep Johal is a Canadian visual artist and muralist whose work is aesthetically and conceptually inspired by her South Asian heritage.
Sandeep believes in the power of art to create awareness around issues related to cultural identity, gender equality, and human rights. Her art practice is an expression of her social and cultural concerns, particularly gender justice. Sandeep has worked with the Vancouver Art Gallery, Burrard Arts Foundation, Vancouver Mural Festival and Indian Summer Festival, and has been featured in numerous print and online publications, including The Globe and Mail and CBC. Sandeep lives and works in Vancouver, BC.
