The new Who We Are film series presented by VIFF and the Museum of Vancouver launches Monday (National Indigenous Peoples Day). Five films (including a dark and gritty residential school-era drama, an absurdist Taika Waititi film, the first feature-length film completely in Inuktitut language, a poetic drama that tackles colonial ideas of sexuality and an in-real-time story of a pivotal chance encounter between two Indigenous women) hand-selected by Indigenous curators are available for online viewing until July 4.

Coho Collective is collaborating with Kula and Elbo Patties for a drool-worthy cookout, and it’s all plant-based. The menu speaks for itself: the “Soul Bowl” (pictured above) is Mac & Cheeze and Ribz in an edible bowl, there’s Elbo Patties in coco bread, Chick’un Sliders with Flour Girl Baking Bun and Mandazi Mini Donuts, plus beer from House of Funk and fresh lemonade. It’s on Friday and Saturday from 4:00 p.m. until sellout—which we’re predicting is bound to happen.
When: Friday June 25 to Saturday June 26, 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.Where: Coho CoffeeMore Info: Instagram
Normal is hard to define, and these artists did just the opposite. Interior Infinite is an art exhibition that embraces the humour and chaos of identity through sculpture, photography and video. The Polygon’s latest exhibit was born from last summer’s Black Lives Matter Movement and the murder of George Floyd, when local curator Justin Ramsey questioned how art could address such atrocities and tragedies. The result is carnivalesque, grotesque and wonderfully weird—it’s visibility as resistance.

Imperfect Offerings embraces flaws (goals) and finds beauty in them—it’s all about rebuilding and healing. The ceramic exhibition features potter Glenn Lewis, curator Jesse Birch, and kintsugi artist Naoko Fukumaru. Kintsugi is the art of golden joinery; Fukumaru “fixes” smashed ceramics with gold and turns them into gorgeous reconstructed art. It’s an exhibition ripe with metaphor at a time when we could all use a little healing.
