Susan Blight will discuss her work as a visual artist, examining visual and spatial formations of Anishinaabeg geographies of resistance in the School of Creative Arts’ first artist talk of the fall, in the Performance Hall at 1 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 6.
Blight is a member of the Anishinaabe, Couchiching First Nation, a UWindsor alumna (MFA 2007), and co-founder of the Ogimaa Mikana artist collective. She holds the Delaney Chair in Indigenous Visual Culture in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences at OCAD University.
Her solo and collaborative practices incorporate public art, site-specific intervention, photography, film, and social practice to question personal and cultural identity and its ongoing relationship to space.
Thursday’s event is free and open to the public; find more details on the SoCA website.
