Tuesday, February 11
Artist Talk by Sameer Farooq
1 - 2 pm 
AA304, Arts & Administration Building, U of T Scarborough
Part of the Visiting Artist Lecture Series, co-presented by the DMG & Department of Arts, Culture & Media

Sameer Farooq is a Canadian artist of Pakistani and Ugandan Indian descent. His interdisciplinary practice investigates tactics of representation and enlists the tools of sculpture, installation, photography, documentary filmmaking, writing and the methods of anthropology to explore various forms of collecting, interpreting, and display. The result is often a collaborative work which counterbalances how dominant institutions speak about our lives: a counter-archive, new additions to a museum collection, or a buried history made visible.

“My spirit name "Wiishkoonseh Miigizi'enh" means Whistling White Headed Eagle. I grew up in Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation and I have apprenticed with Storytellers since I was young. As an Oshkaabewis (Traditional Helper) who previously worked with Anishnawbe Health Toronto, I have been able to incorporate teachings based on traditional knowledge into each project." NMJ

Artist Talk by Paulette Phillips
1 - 2 pm 
AA304, Arts & Administration Building, U of T Scarborough
Part of the Visiting Artist Lecture Series, co-presented by the DMG & Department of Arts, Culture & Media

Paulette Phillips works primarily in film, video, performance and sculpture and is well-known internationally for her emotionally affective artwork. Often drawn to abject abandoned places Phillips documents these spaces through a materialist lens. Feminism, psychology and forensics provide strategies for sifting through these haunted sites. She recently completed a new film, The Quoddy Fold, with 2019/20 exhibitions in The Bonavista Biennale, Nfld., DOKFest, Kassel, Germany, and MSVU Gallery, Halifax.  Her work is represented through Danielle Arnaud Contemporary Art, London UK and she has exhibited her work at venues including the Tate Modern, the Pompidou Centre, Musee d’art contemporain and the National Gallery of Canada.

Guided Walk through the Highland Creek Ravine: Quieting: A Settler History of the UTSC Campus
1 pm – 3pm
DMG
Programming is part of the exhibitions Quieting and This Place, Neyaashiinigmiing

Meet at the Doris McCarthy Gallery for a tour of This Place, Neyaashiinigmiing. Then head outside for a guided walk of the Highland Creek Ravine. This walk makes visible the legal and moral geography of UTSC campus lands in relation to the 'quieting' of an Indigenous presence. It draws on archival research conducted by Sociology faculty and undergraduate student researchers. Told from the perspective of a settler to the land, particular attention is paid to the Miller Lash Estate as an example of a colonial attitude to land that erases the historical theft and ongoing dispossession of Indigenous peoples.
