Past Imperfect: A Canadian History Project community tour

Location
Second floor
Larisa Sembaliuk Cheladyn representing Alberta Council for Ukrainian Art

Join us at the AGA on Tuesday evenings at 6pm for a series of tours of Past Imperfect: A Canadian History Project led by Edmonton community members.

This evening Larisa Sembaliuk Cheladyn, a Visual artist and Community Liaison at the Kule Folklore Centre, will be leading a guided tour of the exhibition. The Past Imperfect: A Canadian History Project will be explored from a Ukrainian Canadian perspective with an emphasis on how the images reflect the historic context into which five waves of Ukrainian immigrants have settled in Canada from 1891 to the present.  Specific topics will relate to the pioneer era, the interaction between the first Ukrainian settlers and the Aboriginal Community, Ukrainian Canadian Internment during WWI, Women’s Rights issues, Inclusivity, and Multicultural Initiatives. The tour will also highlight several Ukrainian Canadian artists that are part of the AGA collection including Orest Semchishen, Tanya Rusnak, and Edward Burtynsky who are featured in Past Imperfect, as well as Natalka Husar and Ihor Dmytruk. In addition, the tour will encourage discussion related to Ukrainian Canadian visual art and how it is represented in contemporary art collections in Canada.

Alberta Council for the Ukrainian Arts (ACUA) is a non-profit Ukrainian arts organization incorporated under the Societies Act of Alberta. It is the mandate of ACUA to facilitate and encourage greater appreciation and awareness of the Ukrainian arts and their cultural significance to the greater Alberta community.

The Kule Folklore Centre at the University of Alberta (KuFC) is the foremost centre for the study of Ukrainian Culture and traditions outside of Ukraine.
