Artists Unscripted: QUEER Imprints
Thursday October 21, 2021 | 6 – 7 PM
Join us for another edition of Artists Unscripted, MOA’s series of informal conversations with artists of diverse backgrounds, practices and outlooks.
This special edition of Artists Unscripted is presented as part of the UBC ARTIVISM Festival 2021: Queering the Self, and features illustrator and comic artist Syan Rose alongside comedian an poet Tin Lorica. Expect the unexpected from these dynamic artists as they take you inside queer artistry and representation, both on stage and in print. Their conversation will be moderated by UBC ARTIVISM Festival’s artistic director, Bianca Santana, and together they will explore the festival’s theme of queer expression in our digital era.
Artists Unscripted is an online series that focuses on listening and learning from established and emerging artists. They will be sharing some of their current projects and the ideas that make them want to create. Each event will include a live discussion and a Q&A.
Artists Unscripted: QUEER Imprints is part of the UBC ARTIVISM Festival 2021: Queering the Self
Syan Rose is an illustrator and comic artist whose work plays with both surrealist and representational imagery to approach topics of personal history, politics, accountability, and healing. Her debut book, Our Work is Everywhere (Arsenal Pulp, 2021) features illustrated interviews, prose, and poetry with Queer and Trans organizers, healers, and artists. Her work has been published in Bitch, Slate, Gay Magazine, Truthout, and Autostraddle, and has self-produced many comics and zines.
Tin Lorica is a comedian and writer based in Vancouver on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh. Their comedic style has been described as someone who is about to bring you bad news, or the vibe of a sentence without punctuation. In October 2020, Tin’s debut chapbook, Soft Armour, was published through Rahila’s Ghost Press. Soft Armour is a collection of poems from Tin’s pre-pandemic, pre-saturn return moments in their life. Tin has a non-ironic degree in women’s studies, and aspires to earn a living wage.
Bianca Santana is the artistic director/producer of UBC’s 4th annual UBC ARTIVISM and has themed this year’s festival ‘Queering the Self’. She is a Latin American photographer, digital designer, producer and activist born in the Dominican Republic and currently is a 4th-year student at UBC, majoring in Media Studies. In her work, Bianca explores themes of race, gender, sexuality and the media, focusing on the way media shapes our society.
