Join us for the official launch of Partage/Partake, an interactive installation where Congolese-inspired masks and drawings start a conversation with the space they’re encapsulated in.

Architecture teacher Kai Wood Mah will be hosting a bilingual discussion to better understand the creative process and work accomplished between Sudbury and British-Columbia by the three McEwen School of Architecture students.

Food and drinks will be served; a contribution is encouraged.

Admission is free as always.


The artists

Kai Wood Mah and Patrick Lynn Rivers co-direct Afield, a design research practice bringing comparative interdisciplinary perspective to contemporary social issues. The practice is critically informed by the integration of design and social science methodologies that advance research-creation.

From northern Transylvania, Romania, Andrei Aranyi is currently pursuing architectural studies at McEwen School of Architecture. His practice in spatial installation is influenced by the contrasts and polarities found in material culture and everyday life.

Jonathan Kabumbe integrates his Congolese culture to his artistic practice in which plasticity is rerouted in order to confront intercultural relations.

Franco-Ontarian now based in British-Columbia, Jennie Philipow works with drawing as a vector of meaning, and is interested in preservation as a mean of recollecting knowledge.
