Artist Talk with Cedric, Nathan & Jim Bomford

August 7, Thursday, 6 – 7:30 pm

The talk will be held at the Vancouver Maritime Museum.

Join us for an illustrated talk with the Bomfords who will share the backstory of the 3+ years leading to the launch of Deadhead, a floating sculptural installation mounted to a WWII barge and towed by tug to different locations. The team will discuss their unique collaborative process and how distinct phases of research, salvaging materials, studio production, and assembling on the Fraser River influenced Deadhead’s final form. This informal presentation will provide opportunities for conversation and discussion about the artwork’s references to British Columbia’s west coast and its unique ecologies, economies, myths and legends.
