Seminar in Canadian Art: Art and Activism in Canada:
This seminar will critically examine activist art histories in Canada, from the late nineteenth century to the early twenty-first century. With a particular emphasis placed on rethinking land in relation to histories of art in Canada, we will consider place as both actual and politically urgent and reflect on how Canada's colonial demarcation has also functioned as a site of resistance whereby forms of visual activism have been consistently engaged and activated. Through readings, screenings, and site visits, we will examine both local and national political struggles and how artists/activists have employed visual media to achieve specific ends.
