"Jan Wade: Soul Power" AGH Exhibition

27 June 2024 - 5 January 2025

For over thirty years, Jan Wade has been creating mixed-media paintings, textiles and sculptural objects, drawing upon her lived experience as an African-Canadian and her mixed cultural heritage. Born and raised in Hamilton, Wade has lived in Vancouver since the early 1990s. Soul Power is her first major retrospective, and it is being showcased exclusively at the AGH, following its debut at the Vancouver Art Gallery in 2021.

Jan Wade: Soul Power brings together the artist’s diverse body of work alongside new pieces made specifically for the exhibition. Personal experience and sustained research inform Wade’s unique practice, which she conceptualizes as an ongoing journey—one that is philosophical, cultural, intellectual and embodied—as she explores the places and practices of her ancestors alongside contemporary political concerns and social issues.
