Tango Seduction: June 14 to August 3, 2019

Artist Statement

For as long as he can remember photographer Dwight Magee has been entranced with the Tango.  “The Tango is a vibrant, playful and ultimately sensual dance between two people. When one watches the Tango it’s as though one becomes a voyeur…. watching a choreographed courtship that exudes both passion and sexuality.”

In the spring of 2018, Dwight found himself and his collection of cameras and lenses jetting off to Buenos Aires, Argentina, the birthplace and heart of the Tango. For just over two weeks he travelled the streets and Milongas of this great city so unlike any other which is passionate about its national treasure.  This exhibition captures images of dancers in harmony and connection through the embrace of Tango.

This exhibition will show in the Upstairs Gallery of the Kitimat Museum & Archives from June 14 to August 3, 2019.

There is no opening reception scheduled for this exhibition.
