Art Gallery opening reception for Amin Rehman's Other Histories! (with Tariq Ali)

Amin Rehman - Other Histories08.jpg

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.

“The cult of conditioning and the harm it does”

Through the tale of two Tigers they will discuss their research behind explaining how Tiger went from winning 14 majors before 2008 to zero thereafter. In addition to Tiger, the presentation will address conditioning techniques in other sports such as swimming, with particular attention to the careers of Nancy Garapick and Missy Franklin. It concludes with prescriptions for limiting the negative impact of sport/exercise practices in contemporary training.
