Join us for a panel discussion focusing on curatorial, critical and artistic projects.

Curator Haema Sivanesan (Glenbow Museum) will present notes from her essay, “Unsettling” the Forest as a Canadian Nationalist Imaginary: Consent, Consultation, and (Re)conciliation in Leila Sujir’s “forest! documents”; Sunny Kerr (Queen’s) will offer methodologies of decolonial curatorial practices at the Agnes Etherington Art Center; and Barbara Clausen (UQÀM) will suggest how to embody exhibitions and activate archives. Charan Singh (Kingston University) will present his creative research informed by HIV/AIDS activism and queer politics. 

Finally, Concordia MFA alumni and Colombia-Canadian duo, Laura Acosta and Santiago Tavera will present their recent media installation projects that explore perspectives of the “other” and spaces of dislocation; Diyar Mayil (MFA Concordia) will present her works on migration.
