Please join Tangled Art + Disability as we open our final exhibition of 2017, Home: Body – a series of live performances featuring Jessica Leung [Vancouver, BC], Jenelle Rouse [London, ON], and Cindy Baker [Edmonton/Lethbridge, AB]. Each of these artists distinctively shapes space and place through the body. All performances will be held at Tangled Art Gallery.

During Home: Body opening reception, Vancouver-based Deaf emerging artist Jessica Leung will perform a selection from “Meeting Jessica Leung”: a community driven presentation connecting Jessica with Toronto Deaf, Black Indigenous and person of colour communities. Leung’s performance includes poetry-based work exploring voice, signing and movement. Tamyka Bullen, Toronto-based Deaf artist and poet has been serving as Jessica’s advisor for this series. As part of this opening for Home : Body, Bullen will share a selection from her poetry.
