Giant origami by Joseph Wu

Giant Origami meets hip hop and cedar weaving

An evening of blended artistic styles on May 6 at the Surrey Art Gallery.

Mix up the past and present in one fun art-making evening.

On Friday, May 6 from 8-11 p.m., the Surrey Art Gallery invites you to attend inFlux, a night of art action that blends time-honoured traditions in music, dance, and visual art with contemporary styles.

This social event offers an eclectic mix of hands on artmaking and live performances. Visitors can be inspired by the new exhibitions, dive straight into the creative process, or just hang out and connect with Surrey’s growing arts community.

The lineup features artists from across the Lower Mainland, including recent South by Southwest artist Horsepowar, who infuses her rap with influences from Bollywood cinema. She will be joined by her DJ, Homeboy Jules.

The stage will also feature Surrey’s own DJ Wundrkut, GurrrBeats, recently named one of the top 25 beatboxers in Canada, as well as world-fusion hip hop dance from Her Tribal Roots.

The night offers plenty of artmaking opportunities, including a collaborative cedar weaving project with Semiahmoo artist Roxanne Charles and giant scale origami with Joseph Wu.

Amir Aziz will perform with video projection, creating and manipulating mandalas and other meditative patterns in real time.

inFlux is presented as part of the Surrey Art Gallery exhibitions Nep Sidhu: Shadows in the Major Seventh and Paulo Majano: I Was Here.

The exhibitions continue until June 12.

Surrey Art Gallery is located at 13750 88 Ave.
