Publication Launch

Tanya Lukin Linklater: My mind is with the weather

Catriona Jeffries, 950 East Cordova Street

In partnership with Catriona Jeffries, CAG is pleased to host a launch for Tanya Lukin Linklater’s publication My mind is with the weather. Lukin Linklater will be joined in conversation by poet and editor Michael Nardone.

Published on the occasion of her recent three-part exhibition of the same name, My mind is with the weather documents a series of significant recent works produced by Lukin Linklater and her collaborators, highlighting her long-term research into relational gestures such as conversation, movement, listening, and touch.

Featuring contributions from Eungie Joo, Layli Long Soldier, Tanya Lukin Linklater, and Beth Piatote, the publication is edited by Frances Loeffler and co-published by the Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver; Oakville Galleries; and the Southern Alberta Art Gallery Maansiksikaitsitapiitsinikssin.


No advance registration required.


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