Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art: Tough Love with Guest Critic Becca Taylor, January 27

Wednesday, January 27, 2021

6:30-9:30pm

Online with Zoom

Free! Artists of all genders welcome. To register for a crit or to participate, email Adriana at programs@mawa.ca with "Tough Love Jan 21" in the subject line to receive a meeting link.

All women and non-binary artists welcome. If finances are a barrier, please speak with MAWA staff.

This group is perfect for those who need feedback or want to discuss art and art issues with a group of peers. Feel like you are working in a vacuum or without community context? Want honest advice? Join other artists and a special guest for a 3-hour discussion, during which artists receive a focussed and constructive group critique. If you have already received several Tough Love critiques at MAWA, perhaps consider giving someone else the opportunity. Everyone is welcome to attend and participate in the dialogue, whether you are sharing work or not.

Becca Taylor is an artist and curator of Cree, Scottish and Irish descent. Her curatorial practice involves investigations of Indigenous community building, food sovereignty and Indigenous feminisms. In 2018, she co-curated the 4th iteration of La Biennale d'art contemporain autochtone (BACA) with Niki Little, entitled níchiwamiskwém | nimidet | my sister | ma sœur, and in that year she was awarded the Dr. Joane Cardinal Schubert Curatorial Fellowship through the Alberta Foundation for the Arts.
