THE COUNTER/SELF exhibition investigates artistic strategies of creating alter-egos to challenge hegemonic discourse and ingrained oppressive attitudes. Foregrounding absented perspectives and counteracting colonial narratives, these personas articulate forms of resistance or gesture to alternative ways of being counterparts in genuine dialogue. In an informal conversation, Meryl McMaster, Adrian Stimson, Laakkuluk Williamson Bathory and Jamie Griffiths will discuss the ways in which they position themselves in relation, confrontation or opposition to dominant socio-political forces and mind frames through the characters they embody.  

This event is free and is open to the public.
