Indigenous artist to discuss interdisciplinary practice

UWindsor alumna Susan Blight (MFA 2007), an interdisciplinary artist working with public art, site-specific intervention, photography, film, and social practice, will discuss her practice in a free public presentation Friday, March 23, at the SoCA Armouries.

Blight will discuss her ongoing work with the Ogimaa Mikana collective, which she co-founded in January 2013 during the height of the Idle No More movement. Through public art, site-specific intervention, and social practice, Ogimaa Mikana asserts Anishinaabe self-determination on the land and in the public sphere.
