Luminous Bodies is a two-week residency to create artworks that shed new light on the human body. Its goal is to reinvent and re-present the body in most inclusive and diverse ways. Visual and textual references, guest artist talks, gallery tours, and studio visits by members of the local art community, help uncover how our bodies are culturally and aesthetically constructed, displayed and controlled. Critiques of residents’ work in progress occur on a regular basis. Residents create artworks that reinvent the body through media of their choice, such as photography, video, installation, drawing, painting, performance art, new media etc. The essence of Luminous Bodies is about bringing to light heterogeneous bodies. People with disabilities, people of colour and diverse gender identifications are encouraged to apply.
