THE BREATHING WALL: CONNIE MICHELE MOREY & TARYN WALKER
AUG 21 – 30 | The Roundhouse at Bayview Place | 253 Esquimalt Road
Join us at The Roundhouse at Bayview Place for another installation of our OFFSITE | INSIGHT Program! We are so pleased to announce The Breathing Wall, a multifaceted collaboration between Connie Michele Morey and Taryn Walker, who first met through their shared association with arc.hive artist run centre in Victoria. Despite being at very different stages of their careers — Morey is a mid-career artist who teaches at the University of Victoria and Camosun College; Walker is an emerging artist who completed her BFA at UVic in 2018 — they found common ground through their interests and ways of working. The outcomes of their collaborative efforts have expanded into different platforms: an exhibition in the car shop of The Roundhouse at Bayview Place in Vic West; a website; a video project; and more. Join us at The Roundhouse at Bayview Place on Thursday, August 20 from 6-9pm for the preview, and on Sunday, August 23 from 2-3:30pm for the artist talk!
