Shibboleth / Pedro Barbáchano

Friday, March 22nd

March 22 – May 4, 2024
Opening Reception // March 22nd, 7-9PM,

In Shibboleth, Pedro Barbáchano reframes the collections of institutional museums in order to question the absence of nonconformist bodies and histories within them.
Through his use of sculpture and photographic mediation, Barbáchano imagines how communities that have been historically persecuted can emerge and maintain their voices, while his use of materials challenges viewers to reconsider their preconceived notions of authenticity and value. Plastic forms mimic stone sculptures, presenting alternate forms of sculptures that have no known origin, their histories repressed and forgotten.
The reproduction of these historical artifacts and deviation from their original configuration becomes a resistance to this erasure and becomes a confrontation with the institutions that perpetuate it.

The CKUA Events Calendar is a listing of music, arts, and culture happenings for the whole province. It is a terrific resource that CKUA offers to the community, to share details about concerts, gallery openings, plays, and films.

Please note that due to the amount of listings, we publish events that focus on music, arts, or culture. While we’d love to publish all submitted items, the sheer number of events means that we sometimes have to decline submissions.

Need to change or update your submitted event?

Email details to feedback@ckua.com and the CKUA team of calendar volunteers will do the rest.
