Programming 2022-2023:
Moving the Landscape to Find Ground

Moving the Landscape to Find Ground is a cycle of artist talks and artist residencies which will take place from September 2022 until May 2023 . This series is built from a shared ambition to break open lens-based practices via the interrogation of the colonial prism through which photography exists. We are inviting conversation among all communities impacted by the colonial gaze. Our proposed programming is in collaboration with the Indigenous Futures Research  Centre, the Feminist Media Studio and the Black Perspectives Office

As such, our proposed programming begins with a Speakers Series composed of invited Indigenous and Black artists, theorists and curators who will present their research/research-creation practice.

The invited speakers will provide studio visits to Concordia University graduate students. If you wish to have a studio visit with oneof our speakers, please sign up here.

Our programming includes an artist in residence: Scott Benesiinaabandan. Scott will develop a project at the Post Image Lab which will be in dialogue with the rest of the programming and its thematic chord: the dissection of the settler photographic archive. Furthermore, the artist in residence will host a public artist talk, activating the space through a workshop, and conducting studio visits with graduate students of the Fine Arts faculty. 

This project is generously funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, Milieux Institute for Arts and Culture, Concordia University’s OVPRGS (Office of the Vice-President, Research and Graduate Studies), the Black Perspectives Office, the Indigenous Futures Research Center and the Feminist Media Studio.
