COVID-19 Policy

Images Festival is committed to providing an accessible festival and continues to work to reduce barriers to participation at our events. This year, we are implementing a COVID-19 policy to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission for all, and to prioritize the participation of people who are disability-identified, immunocompromised, or part of an otherwise vulnerable group.

The following guidelines will be in place: Self-Assessment: We ask that staff and participants screen themselves for COVID-19 before visiting the exhibition.

Working in a wide range of media including performance, video, sound, ceramic and sculpture, Ayam Yaldo explores narratives that shift between the personal and the political, the past and present, reality and myth. Her research is concerned with the formation of identity and subjectivity, and how these take shape in relation to grand historical narratives, the European tradition of archeology, and her personal experience of war and displacement from the Middle East as a child. Focusing on the body, identity and image, she explores concepts of reconstruction, transformation and ephemerality, in relation to forms of displacement.

Please join us for the opening reception on April 22, 2023, from 2:00-5:00 pm. The artist will be in attendance.

Ayam Yaldo is an interdisciplinary artist based in Tiohtiá:ke/Montréal. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Studio Arts and a Master of Fine Arts from Concordia University in the department of Intermedia.

Franz Kaka is a contemporary art gallery located in Toronto, Ontario. The gallery opened in 2016 as a project-based space, presenting exhibitions by emerging and established artists that privileged experimentation and risk-taking. In 2019 Franz Kaka began representing a number of the artists who had previously presented work with the gallery. In addition to its exhibition program, Franz Kaka regularly presents off-site projects through gallery collaborations and international art fairs.
