Rebecca Belmore
Wednesday, February 25, 2015, 7pm
Ryerson University Lecture Hall: TBC

Join artist Rebecca Belmore for a lecture on her recent work. The event is free and open to the public. Please arrive early to ensure seating.  

Belmore (Anishnaabe) is a member of the Lac Seul First Nation, currently living and working in Montreal. Through a variety of media, including performance, sculpture, video and installation, she confronts Canada's continued colonial impact on First Nations peoples and through her practice subverts both historical and contemporary power structures to release and empower her community through art. 

Her work will appear alongside six other contemporary artists in Anti-Glamour: Portraits of Women, on view at the Ryerson Image Centre from January 21 to April 5, 2015.
