Artist Talk: Aislinn Thomas | Thursday 12 March
Join us on Thursday 12 March for a free Artist Talk with Kitchener-based artist Aislinn Thomas, who will share the process behind her commissioned response to the Permanent Collection works on display in The Myth of Consensus.
Aislinn Thomas is an interdisciplinary artist whose practice includes video, performance, sculpture, installation, and text. She culls material from everyday experiences and relationships, creating work that ranges from poignant to absurd (at times straddling both). Her recent works explore the generative nature of disability while pushing up against conventional standards of access.
Recent exhibitions include Draft Systems WRO Media Arts Biennial in Wroclaw, Poland; TALK BACK at Flux Factory in Queens, New York; and A distinct aggregation / A dynamic equivalent / A generous ethic of invention: Six writers respond to six sculptures commissioned by the Walter Phillips Gallery at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity in Banff, AB. Aislinn is a settler of Ashkenazi and British descent. She lives and works on the Haldimand Tract, land promised to the Six Nations near the Grand River in Ontario, Canada.
In consideration of the access, safety and well-being of all participants, we ask that you please help the Gallery maintain a fragrance-reduced space by refraining from using perfume, essential oils and scented personal care products when attending this talk. For more information on how and why to reduce fragrance use, please see Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha’s website, and/or Nova Scotia Health’s Scent-Free Resource Binder.
