What do we see when we look at a photo? What memories might it provoke in us? How can strangers connect over a shared memory?

CUAG invites you to join “Through My Lens,” a participatory immersive experience led by Vancouver-based artist Amy Amantea. This event is free and everyone is welcome!

We’ll convene on Zoom. You can register here.

In this event, Amantea, who lost her sight at age 24 and later became a photographer under the tutelage of Rick Hulbert, asks us to describe to her various photos she has taken and never actually seen.

Through this activity, Amantea demonstrates herself as an artist of opportunity, seeking out moments to collaborate with other artists and participants, engaging in art forms that stretch her as a creator.
