Get the inside story behind Chrysalis on an exclusive exhibition tour with Greek photographer Olga Stefatou.
A collection of intimate portraits, Chrysalis introduces viewers to 11 refugee women living in Greece. Each woman’s story is different, owing to the unique forces that caused her to uproot her life and eventually cross paths with Stefatou. Accompanying the photographs are testimonials from the women, who have journeyed to Greece from Syria, Iran, Iraq, and Afghanistan.
Stefatou will be in Toronto for Chrysalis’s opening at the Aga Khan Museum. Don’t miss your chance to ask the artist about her inspiration for the series, the connections she made with women who posed for her, and her views on how art can help us better understand the experiences of migrants in the 21st century.
Olga Stefatou is an award-winning Greek visual artist working with photography and video. In her practice, she investigates the idea of freedom and its connections to geopolitics, heritage, and social structures, with a special interest in gender issues.
