PP/CA Rosalie Favell, Axené07

Maria Hupfield‘s Post Performance / Conversation Action with Rosalie Favell

As part of the exhibitions #callresponse and Endless Landscape at Axené07, presented by SAW Gallery in partnership with the NAC’s Canada Scene

Friday June 30 7pm, Axené07 80 Rue Hanson, Gatineau

In this work, together with Ottawa based Artist Rosalie Favell we will adapt the public art talk format into one of community building and intergenerational solidarity with arts organizations that demonstrate committed support to dialogue. As cultural insiders we will discuss topics related to our work, prioritizing Indigenous women as individual and collective voices, to claim and mediate space through conversation as performance.

Strategically centering Indigenous women as vital presences across multiple platforms, #callresponse is a multifaceted project that includes a touring exhibition, website, social-media platform, and catalogue. Beginning with a series of local art commissions by Indigenous women and artists whose home communities span the country, the project is geographically expansive yet brought together in the physical space of the gallery and the virtual space of the Internet. Envisioning the initial commissions as a call to action, each artist has invited a guest to respond to their work. The resulting works are exhibited together alongside a series of engaging public performances and events.

#callresponse is produced in partnership with grunt gallery and generously supported by the {Re}conciliation initiative of the Canada Council for the Arts, the J.W. McConnell Family Foundation and The Circle on Philanthropy and Aboriginal Peoples in Canada. Additional funding support from the British Columbia Arts Council. Presentation partners include BUSH Gallery, Emily Carr University of Art + Design, FADO Performance Art Centre, Kamloops Art Gallery, OFFTA live art festival, the National Arts Centre, and the Native Education College.

Previous iterations of Post Performance / Conversation Action included guest Alanis Obomsawin at UQAM for OFFTA and Onishka in Montreal and Ursula Johnson and Cheryl L’Hirondel at MONOMYTHS, FADO for the Progress Festival in Toronto.
