Join Métis artist Dayna Danger for a tour focusing on photography by Indigenous artists.

Dayna Danger is a two-spirit Metis – Anishinaabe (Saulteaux) – and Polish visual artist raised in so called Winnipeg, Manitoba. Utilizing photography, sculpture, performance and video, Dayna Danger’s practice questions the line between empowerment and objectification by claiming space with her larger-than-life-scale work. Danger’s current use of BDSM and beading leather fetish masks explores the complicated dynamics of sexuality, gender and power in a consensual and feminist manner. Currently based in Tio'tia:ke – Moniang, Danger has exhibited her work in Santa Fe, Winnipeg, Montreal, Peterborough, North Bay, Vancouver, Edmonton and Banff. She holds a MFA in Photography from Concordia University and currently serves as a board member for the Aboriginal Curatorial Collective (ACC/CCA).

In English with bilingual question period. Free admission.

Join us afterwards for a talk in the Library with Dayna Danger and Sophie Guignard, one of the 2017 CPI Research Fellow.
