MICHÈLE PEARSON CLARKE: PARADE OF CHAMPIONS
June 5 – 28, 2015
Student Gallery, Ryerson Image Centre

Drawing on the artist’s experience of grieving her own mother’s death, Parade of Champions documents the grief experiences of three black queer individuals whose mothers have also recently died. Employing still video portraits and audio interviews, this immersive three-channel installation invites viewers to bear witness to this black queer grief. 

The exhibition is a part of Ryerson University’s MFA Documentary Media Festival DOC NOW and is an affiliate event of Pride Toronto 2015.
