Nepal is the Best Value Destination to travel to. Nepal’s cultural landscape is every bit as diverse as its physical one. The spectacular Himalayas comprise the highest mountains on earth and boast a surreal landscape of snow-covered peaks sure to leave a powerful impression. The Himalayan country of Nepal, situated between India and China, offers some of the best access to these mountain peaks, where landscapes vary from subtropical valleys (complete with banana trees) to alpine forests (home to grazing yaks). Customs and traditions differ from one part of Nepal to another. A conglomeration lies in the capital city, Kathmandu, where cultures are blending to form a national identity. Kathmandu Valley has served as the country’s cultural metropolis since the unification of Nepal in the 18th Century. A prominent factor in Nepali’s everyday life is religion. Adding color to the lives of Nepalese are festivals the year round which they celebrate with much pomp and joy. Food plays an important role in the celebration of these festivals. Capital is surrounded by a valley full of historic sites, ancient temples, shrines, and fascinating villages. Kathmandu is an incredibly diverse historic city with breathtaking Newari architecture, centuries-old Hindu and Buddhist religious sites. […]
The Program will be directed by writers Ginger Teppner and Andrew Helton. Fall 2021 | October 11 – November 20 (tbd) 2021 | Virtual Program The Earth Of: Ruptures and Reckonings is a collective virtual space of inquiry. Through writing and discourse we investigate how to manifest and inhabit the fractures that pervade our lives, allowing for the creative space to grow organically through digressions, tangents, musings, and synchronistic linkages. What does it mean when humanity crosses a threshold of such significance it manifests as a rupture, when the world is on the cusp? The brain wants to organize, filter, and separate out. Yet, beyond the confusion perpetrated by language that fails to adequately define, are spaces. We find meaning when we implicitly inhabit these spaces—gestures that guide the cracks to spread toward shattering. These moments of rupture burst forth from gesture into reckoning, exposing us to what is real and true and essential. https://www.artslettersandnumbers.com/the-earth-of-3

David Gersten & Homa Shojaie October 9th – November 20th, 2021 | Virtual Program Arts Letters & Numbers is pleased to announce “SunShip: Thesis II at Arts Letters & Numbers”, a six-week immersive virtual studio program led by David Gersten and Homa Shojaie. The Studio program is being held as part of “SunShip: The Arc That Makes The Flood Possible,” Arts Letters & Numbers’ exhibition in the CITYX Venice Italian Virtual Pavilion of the 17th Venice Architecture Biennale. SunShip: The Arc That Makes the Flood Possible Tens of centuries ago, trees of enormous scale were cut, trimmed, skinned of their bark, and bound together using a particularly robust fibrous rope for the construction of rafts that anticipated the crossing of the great raging seas. Although strong, this rope was not often used near the sea; salt broke down its fiber, sea salt ate away its strength. The trees were bound in such a way that the rolling motion of the sea dug the rope into the soft wood of the trees; the particular knot and binding allowed the push and pull of the sea to work the rope into deep grooves in the wood. In time, as the wood swelled […]

“Pequeñas Extrañezas de Cuentos Sin Contar” (ENG – Little Oddities of Untold Stories) is an installation work that seeks – through the use of materials such as steel, concrete and ceramics – to place the viewer in dialogue with the subjective and metaphorical possibilities of the elements arranged within the exhibition space. The work explores the limits of the room and conditions the visitor’s journey, generating spaces for stillness and thought that complement the very nature of the work. Felipe García Salazar is a visual artist and cultural manager. He graduated from the School of Visual Arts in New York, with a Master in Production and Artistic Research from the University of Barcelona. His work explores, in an autobiographical way, his relationship with time, history and his own identity. Through installation work Felipe seeks to create spaces for thought and dialogue with the viewer, and invites us to reflect on the contemporary status quo and what we understand as reality.
The SPAO Centre Gallery is thrilled to present Intimate Textures of the Digital World featuring the work of Gatineau-based artist AM Dumouchel, Montreal-based artist Gilles Tarabiscuité and Vancouver-based Haida artist Jaad Kuujus (Meghann O’brien). The artists in this exhibition negotiate between digital and physical spaces, continually asking viewers to orient themselves between physicality and abstraction. The artworks capture a tactile and sensory subject matter, despite the mediation of the lens in two-dimensions. Viewers are encouraged to explore intimate conversations of metamorphosis, belonging and manual labour while also discovering their place between virtuality and reality.
