Voicing the City In/verse: Reading Surrey and the Super Suburb

The City In-Verse - Surrey Art Gallery

Sound Thinking 2015 examines the rich literary and spoken word output of Canada’s super-suburb, specifically Surrey and its surrounding South of the Fraser region. Here, poets, novelists, and spoken word artists have been working for decades and are working in greater numbers to portray and depict these complex and changing spaces.

Convened by Phinder Dulai and Jordan Strom, Voicing the City In/verse is presented in conjunction with Surrey Art Gallery’s 40th anniversary show, Views from the Southbank, a three-part series of exhibitions of art from and about the South of Fraser region. “
