Martin Akwiranoron Loft: Artist Talk And Reception

Post Image presents the first installment of Moving the Landscape to Find Ground, a cycle of artist talks and artist residencies which will take place from September 2022 until May 2023. The first speaker in the series will be Martin Akwiranoron Loft, photographer, printmaker, and craftsperson from Kahnaw√°:ke. This speaker series is built from a shared ambition to break open lens-based practices via the interrogation of the colonial prism through which photography exists. We are inviting conversation among all communities impacted by the colonial gaze.  

The first gathering will take place on September 27th at 4PM in-person in the Milieux Institute Resource room (EV 11.705) at Concordia University, AND online via Zoom. The event will begin with opening words by Elder Kawennotas Sedalia Fazio.

After the talk, there will be a public reception on the terrace. Registration for in-person attendance is not required. Please sign up if you wish to attend online via Zoom. For more information click here.

Speakers invited to the series will also provide studio visits to Concordia University graduate students. If you wish to have a studio visit with one of our speakers, please sign up here.

This event is presented in collaboration with the Indigenous Futures Research Centre, the Feminist Media Studio, the Black Perspectives Office and daphne Arts Centre and with the support of Milieux Institute for Arts and Culture, the Faculty of Fine Arts, the Office of the Vice-President, Research and Graduate Studies and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
