Join us for an inspiring conversation with multidisciplinary Métis artist Jaime Black on the renowned REDress Project and other works exploring memory, identity, place and resistance.
Thursday, October 14, 2021
7 to 8:30 p.m. (EDT)
This Women’s History Month, join us for an inspiring conversation with multidisciplinary Métis artist Jaime Black. Of Anishinaabe and Finnish descent, the artist first came to prominence in 2011 with her renowned REDress Project, a thought-provoking installation reflecting the absence of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls. During this special evening, Black will briefly discuss the ongoing impact of the REDress Project around the world, and share some of her other works focusing on political and social issues, as well as themes of memory, identity, place and resistance. Moderated by Sylvia Dreaver, Emerging Curator of Indigenous Arts at the Canadian Museum of History, this fascinating exploration of art and activism will be followed by a Q&A session with the audience.
This event is presented in English with simultaneous French interpretation.
Interpretation will be provided in American Sign Language (ASL) and in the langue des signes québécoise (LSQ).
