Through a strikingly minimal visual vocabulary, the work of Kapwani Kiwanga employs extensive research on institutional architecture and design, the management of bodies through colour and light, and subtle means of resistance or subversion. Join Elizabeth Diggon, Esker’s lead researcher, on this informal tour that will trace the threads of research and the connections to Alberta histories and institutions that run through Kapwani Kiwanga’s 'A wall is just a wall (and nothing more at all).'
