The cycles of birth, life and death are a commonality shared across time, cultures, races and religions, with rites of passage and initiation often forming core beliefs within a culture. Since our earliest records, humans have made visual representations of our lives, and for many centuries since, artists have communicated spiritual concepts through visual means to create understanding for their communities.
Given this significance, Ritual Arts invites artists to explore the stories, memories, ceremonies, and deeper meanings of these cycles within their own personal and cultural contexts, in order to express and dialogue between our unique viewpoints.
We are happy to announce that the 2nd Annual Ritual Arts Exhibition will take place this coming November at Calgary’s cSpace in Marda Loop. Our change of venue opens new doors to the possibilities around the inclusion of expanded performing arts showcases alongside the visual art exhibition which will now remain active for public viewing for the entire month of November.
We are also extremely excited to announce that we are hosting Internationally renowned artist, dancer and teacher, TIARE VALOURIA from Portland, Oregon for the 2023 exhibition. This stunning and dynamic artist will be performing in both performance gallery showcases as well as teaching a one-day, Ritual Theatre Immersion encompassing her system of Elemental Fusion Dance.
