This virtual event will be hosted on Zoom - please follow this link to register to attend.

Deanna Bowen makes use of a repertoire of artistic gestures to define the Black body and trace its presence and movement in place and time. In recent years, her work has involved a rigorous examination of her family lineage and their connections to the Black Prairie pioneers of Alberta and Saskatchewan, the Creek Negroes and All-Black towns of Oklahoma, the extended Kentucky/Kansas Exoduster migrations, and the Ku Klux Klan. The artistic products of this research have been exhibited extensively and Bowen's works have garnered significant critical regard internationally. In 2020, Bowen was named one of eight winners of the Governor General's Awards in Visual and Media Arts, an annual award for outstanding contributions to Canadian creativity.

Black Drones in the Hive is on view at KWAG until 28 February 2021.
