Tune into an exciting conversation between legendary Egyptian-Canadian artist of Armenian origins, Anna Boghiguian and the co-curator of Time of Change exhibition at The Power Plant, Adelina Vlas, who will discuss the creative nuances of Boghiguian’s vast catalogue of work.
Anna Boghiguian was born in Cairo, Egypt, in 1946 and has Armenian roots. She studied political and social science at the American University of Cairo and holds a BFA in fine arts and music from Concordia University in Montreal, Canada. Since the early 1970s, her art has emerged from various movements around the globe, translating a nomadic experience and gaze into painting and installation, collages and books. As a travelling artist, she tells of how people and ideas, relationships and goods vary and evolve, sometimes bright and fluid, sometimes bound in inequality and oppression.
