Open Studio is a monthly program for young visitors and families inspired by contemporary art practices and CAG’s current exhibitions. In November, we invite you to join us for an art-making workshop led by artist Sidney Gordon.

Inspired by CAG’s current exhibition Lotus L. Kang: In Cascades, participants will learn how to make lumen prints through a cameraless process with photo-sensitive materials. Throughout the course of the session, participants will use their body, shadows and light in and around the gallery to capture passages of time and place.


Registration for this event is free, but limited. A number of spots are reserved for families. RSVP to secure your place here.


Sidney Gordon (they/them) is a queer artist and cultural worker, born and raised on Treaty 4 territory. They hold a BMA in Film + Screen Arts from Emily Carr University of Art + Design in so-called “Vancouver”, where they have lived and worked since 2018. The main focus of their film work is creating experiential embodiment, often portraying and deriving from personal subconscious experiences, while their cameraless photographic practice focuses on questioning authorship through ecological co-creation. They are co-founder and curator of XINEMA, a local experimental film series and a member of the artist run space and collective Liquidation World.


ASL interpretation is available on request. Requests can be accommodated up to 5 days in advance. Please contact to book or for more information.
