A symposium on strategies, projects, and policies to effect change within White settler arts institution within the Fine Arts

By the Post Image Research Cluster

Post-Image Research Cluster, led by co-directors, Deanna Bowen, Hannah Claus (outgoing) and Juan Ortiz-Apuy (incoming), is excited to announce a compelling 2-day symposium titled “Visioning New Horizons”. Taking place on November 3rd and 4th, 2023, this event extends the dialogue initiated in Post-Image’s 2022-2023 speaker series “Moving the Landscape to Find Ground,” aiming to explore strategies, projects, and policies to affect change and decenter colonialism within arts institutions founded upon White settler governance and colonial structures. “Visioning New Horizons” is presented in partnership with Indigenous Futures Research Centre, Faculty of Fine Arts, Milieux Institute for Arts and Culture and Onkwehonwené:ha Research Chair.

From interrogating images, to the critical role of curation in challenging narratives, the panels will engage with 2-Spirit/Queer practices and IBPOC expression of new materialities through lens-based practices, navigating through critical themes in arts and culture. Attendees can anticipate thought-provoking conversations that not only delve into past practices but also envision actionable change for the future.
