Tangled Art + Disability have invited me to participate in an action research project sponsored by the Ontario Arts Council. The project is intended to engage practicing artists with disabilities and Deaf artists to develop artwork, and to produce descriptions of their practices, artistic processes, and experiences as a means of identifying the challenges, successes, barriers and opportunities they encounter.
This summer YYZ is running a month-long directed mentoring and educational residency for emerging visual artists, independent curators, and new Canadians with professional arts training who live beyond the downtownwn core. Through a series of facilitated seminars, studio visits, and critiques, participants have the chance to further their practice, make connections, and develop a body of work for exhibition.
Work that I made in Cambodia this spring titled "The Promise That Tomorrow Made Yesterday" has been showing at the Stantec Window Gallery. They've been really wonderful to work with and it's been a great opportunity. I would like to acknowledge funding support from the Ontario Arts Council, an agency of the Government of Ontario.
