A Closer Look Tour:
Ric Kokotovich: Mardi Gras 1983 - 1987

August 27

Free with Admission

"Each year that I returned to Mardi Gras, the images became more intimate as my relationships with the central characters deepened, while the caliginous beauty of Mardi Gras opened doors to a richer understanding of my own identity and beliefs."" - Ric Kokotovich

August 23 - Sept 1 is Pride Week in Calgary. To honour this important week and celebrate diversity in Calgary, we will be offering this tour of Ric Kokotovich's stunning portraits of Mardi Gras in 1980s' New Orleans. Focusing on members of the LGBTQ community, these images speak to the radical power of public procession, performance, costume and celebration in forming individual and collective notions of identity.
