Moving the Landscape to Find Ground: Opening
+ Martin Akwiranoron Loft Artist Talk

Post Image presents the first installment of Moving the Landscape to Find Ground, a cycle of artist talks and artist residencies which will take place from September 2022 until May 2023 . The first speaker in the series will be Martin Akwiranoron Loft, photographer, printmaker, and craftsperson from Kahnawá:ke. 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.

The first gathering will take place on September 27th at 4PM: in-person at Concordia University (EV 11.705, EV Building, 1515 St. Catherine W., Montreal) or online via Zoom. The event will begin with opening words by Elder Kawennotas Sedalia Fazio. After the talk, there will be a public reception with food (EV 11th Floor Terrace).

To attend onlive via Zoom please register here. Registration for in-person attendance is not required.

If you wish to see the rest of the talks, please visit our programming section, sign up to our newsletter or follow us on Instagram.  The speakers invited to Moving the Landscape to Find Ground will also provide studio visits to Concordia University graduate students. If you wish to have a studio visit with one of our speakers, please sign up here.

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