However, this means we relinquish control of our data. Dr. Anita Ho will discuss who can access our information and how will it be used? Who determines whether we have an existing condition?

Artist talk: Saturday January 13th 3 pm.
Since moving to Canada from Pakistan in 1990, Amin Rehman has consistently delved into socio-political themes in his work. Rehman reflects, “It’s always a challenge to exhibit politically charged work.
"My position is one that involves negotiating but not compromising, so that, as an artist, I don’t play to the tune of hegemony.”
Rehman’s uncompromised and indeed provocative works push for a re-examination of both historic and contemporary texts that, despite being conveyed through simple English phrases and word pairings, question the power dynamics within situations of political unrest.
