VIBE YOUTH FESITVAL 2019
Sat 29 June
11am - 4pm
VIBE is a free festival that celebrates youth talent in the West. It features music, dance, performance, exhibitions, graffiti art and art workshops. Get involved!
Join our round table discussion with artists John Vea and Sakina Ewazi as we dissect the ideas surrounding culture and privilege in relation to our current exhibitions.
Auckland based artist Sakina Ewazi graduated with a Bachelor in Visual Art and Design from Auckland University of Technology in 2015. Originally from Ghazni, Afghanistan Ewazi draws inspiration from her cultural heritage and shares her refugee journey through her art practice.
Artist John Vea is based in Tamaki Makaurau (Auckland) and works with sculpture, video and performance art. John gained a Master of Art and Design from Auckland University of Technology in 2015, where he is currently undertaking his Ph.D. candidature.
Vea works with tropes of migration and gentrification within Moana Nui a Kiwa. By enacting stories that have been collected through everyday interactions with people, both in his home community and abroad, with a journalistic sensibility he brings a sometimes humorous and always powerfully symbolic emic1 viewpoint to the Western meta narrative.
