Artist Talk: Kama LaMackerel – Interstices: towards a decolonial trans poetics of the future
April 29 at7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
School of Art Gallery is pleased to host a talk by Kama LaMackerel (they/them), a Mauritian multidisciplinary artist, educator, cultural mediator, writer, and literary translator who lives and loves in tio’tia:ke (Montréal), Canada. Their work is grounded in the exploration of justice, love, healing, decoloniality and self-and collective-empowerment. Kama’s artistic practice spans across textile, visual, poetic, digital, and performative work; their work is at once narratological and theoretical, at once personal and political. A firm believer that artistic practices have the power to build resilience, to heal, and to act as forms of resistance to the status quo, their work articulates an anti-colonial praxis through cultural production.
Facilitated on Zoom and live-streaming on the School of Art Gallery, University of Manitoba YouTube channel.
Live captions and ASL available. The event will be recorded and uploaded to YouTube.
