UNION GALLERY'S BOOKSHELF SELECTION: REPRESENTATION AS MANIFOLD

Curated by Ellyn Walker || From April 29-May 31st

What are the different ways that one can represent the self? Likewise, what are the distinct ways in which place can be signified? These questions of self-representation and place-making, particularly, in relation to each other, point to unique modes of engagement that hold cultural specificity. This two-part installation proposes diverse representational practices as a way to evidence both the need and importance of engaging with multiple perspectives and voices at once - a curatorial strategy that allows for spaces of contestation and, thus, critical diversity.

Ellyn Walker is a writer and curator based between Toronto and Kingston. Her work is informed by critical art history, Indigenous-Settler studies and anti-racist methodologies, and focuses on the politics of cross-cultural work within representative and collaborative arts practices. She is currently a PhD student in the Cultural Studies program at Queen’s University, where she also works as the Research & Programming Assistant at Union Gallery.
