We will convene on Zoom; please register here.
Marigold Santos pursues an inter-disciplinary art practice that examines lived experience and storytelling, presented within the otherworldly. Kablusiak explores the disconnections and connections of life in the Inuit diaspora. Jagdeep Raina’s work evokes textured local and transnational geographies of longing and belonging that emerge in the quest to establish home.
Marigold Santos was born in the Philippines and immigrated with her family to Canada in 1988. She currently lives in Calgary. Her work explores self-hood and identity that embraces multiplicity, fragmentation and empowerment, as informed by experiences of movement and migration.
Kablusiak is a multidisciplinary Inuvialuk artist and curator who uses Inuk ingenuity to create work in a variety of mediums. In all of their creative work, Kablusiak seeks to demystify Inuit art and create the space for Inuit-led representation of diverse aspects of Inuit cultures.
Jagdeep Raina was born in Guelph, Ontario. In his research-based practice, Raina utilizes the archive in order to explore historical memory. His work seeks to identify the residue left behind by the human touch, and its restorative potential.
