Art Windsor-Essex respectively acknowledges that we are located on Anishinaabe Territory – the traditional territory of the Three Fires Confederacy of First Nations, comprised of the Ojibway, the Odawa, and the Potawatomi. Today the Anishinaabe of the Three Fires Confederacy are represented by Bkejwanong. We want to state our respect for the ancestral and ongoing authority of Walpole Island First Nation over its Territory.
In Conversation: Catherine Hois and Muriel Kahwagi
Time and Date: Thursday, April 20, 2023, 7pm-7:30pm
Location: 2nd floor galleries
Join artist Catherine Hois and curator Muriel Kahwagi for an artist talk and guided tour of Hois’ current exhibition, Catherine Hois: Disruptive Body. Her work explores how our anxieties inscribed into our flesh and how they reflect our lived experiences. Drawing on her own relationship with her body, Catherine Hois’ sculptural and video works address these questions by reflecting on her struggles with an eating disorder and body dysmorphia, and her ongoing healing process.
This exhibition forms part of Below the 6, a series of exhibitions that focuses on artists based in Southwestern Ontario whose practices are socially and politically minded. Below the 6 is curated by TD Fellow Muriel N. Kahwagi and is generously supported by TD Bank Group.
