In Halifax, the artists of ViewPoint Gallery of Contemporary Photography and the Flamenco community have collaborated to present Seeking Duende: Halifax Flamenco. The exhibition is open from now until October 30, with a curatorial talk on October 16, from 2 to 4 p.m. Curated by Holly Crooks, a visual artist and dance photographer, the exhibition explores the flamenco art form, the concept of duende (“soul”) in its dancers, and the vibrant flamenco community in Halifax.
