Student profile

Megan K. Quigley

Megan K. Quigley is an MA student in the Art History program at Concordia University, working and learning as a guest in Tiohtià:ke. She holds a BA in Gender Studies from The University of Victoria and a BFA in Art History and Studio Art from Concordia University.  Of mixed Irish and Filipina descent, Megan’s work is informed by multi-racial and diasporic positionalities. Her research and curatorial practices are concerned with decolonial and queer methodologies, critical geographies, curatorial hospitality, and land-based research practices. She has previously held positions with Primary Colours/Couleurs primaires, Open Space, and the fifty fifty arts collective, in Lekwungen Territories. Megan’s MA thesis asks how contemporary curatorial practices may participate in mediating institutional relationships to land, through ecologically-oriented, community-led, public art engagements. Her research focuses on 221A’s ongoing project Semi-Public, specifically the currently installed x̱aw̓s shew̓áy̓/New Growth by T’uy’t’tanat-Cease Wyss.
