    “This is Kwantlen” Langley Fine Arts School Exhibit

    Culture and entertainment
    Location(s): Fort Langley National Historic Site
    Cost: Free

    Event description

    This is Kwantlen is an exciting portrait series initiated by the Langley Fine Arts School photography and creative writing departments. Twenty-four large-scale black and white portraits and biographies displayed around Fort Langley are to identify the importance of the Kwantlen First Nation to the community. The goal of this project is to educate the community and to acknowledge the Kwantlen First Nation in their unceded territory, which includes Fort Langley.

    Langley Fine Arts School photography and writing students recently worked with members of the Kwantlen First Nation to learn about Indigenous heritage and culture with a focus from Kwantlen peoples’ perspectives. Many of the students are also enrolled in BC First Peoples courses which are part of BC’s redesigned curriculum. These courses help students gain a greater understanding of Canadian history with Indigenous viewpoints. Furthermore, it encourages participation in the Truth and Reconciliation process.

    During April and May of 2019, This is Kwantlen will be exhibited in public spaces around Fort Langley on the outer wall of the Fort Langley historic site, and on exteriors of buildings around the village of Fort Langley. 

    Admission details

    Since the exhibit is on the exterior walls of the fort, there is no admission fee to view it.

    “Contemporary Landscapes” Art Exhibit

    Culture and entertainment
    Location(s): Fort Langley National Historic Site
    Cost: Regular admission fees apply

    Event description

    Beyond depiction of beautiful views, landscape art has served multiple purposes throughout the past 500 years: showing ownership, depicting leisure, and propagating nationalism. Kwantlen Polytechnic University Fine Arts students who are undertaking the course “Politics in Landscape” have studied the political implications of landscape art, touching on ideas of the “wilderness myth” in Canada, as well as racial, historical, and environmental issues in landscape. 

    “Contemporary Landscapes” is an exhibition that responds to two on-site learning experiences – a native plant walk with a Kwantlen elder in Campbell Valley Park, and an interpretive tour of the Fort Langley National Historic Site. Students' artistic responses encompass drawing, painting, sculpture, and installation to consider their own relationship to land in this contemporary moment.

    Admission details

    $7.80 per adult, $6.55 per senior, and free for youth 17 and under. Fort Langley annual pass holders and Parks Canada Discovery Pass holders also get free entry.
