Ryerson University, School of Image Arts Visiting Artist Program presents:

AWARD WINNING MULTI-DISCIPLINARY ARTIST HAJRA WAHEED
PUBLIC LECTURE, NOVEMBER 21, 7pm - FREE
School of Image Arts, Ryerson University, Toronto, ON
122 Bond St., Room 307

Please join us for a free lecture by multidisciplinary artist Hajra Waheed on November 21 at 7 pm in the School of Image Arts, Ryerson University. Waheed’s practice ranges from interactive installations to collage, video, sound and sculpture. Prompted by news accounts and extensive research, Waheed uses complex narrative structures to explore issues surrounding covert power, mass surveillance, cultural distortion and the traumas and alienation of displaced subjects via mass migration.

Over the last decade, Waheed has participated in exhibitions worldwide, most recently including the 57th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia, VIVA ARTE VIVA, Venice (2017); 11th Gwangju Biennale, South Korea (2016); The Cyphers, BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead, UK (2016); Still Against the Sky, KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin (2015); L’avenir (Looking Forward), La Biennale de Montréal, Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, QC (2014).

She received the prestigious 2014 Victor Martyn Lynch-Staunton Award for outstanding achievement as a Canadian mid-career visual artist and was shortlisted for the 2016 Sobey Art Award, Canada’s preeminent contemporary art prize. Waheed’s works can be found in permanent collections including MOMA, New York; British Museum, London; the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa; Burger Collection, Zurich/Hong Kong and Devi Art Foundation, New Delhi.

The lecture is free and open to the public.

The School of Image Arts’ visiting artist program is designed to enhance the school’s programs by bringing artists to share their expertise with students through in-class critiques, seminars, and public lectures open to the Ryerson community and the general public. The School of Image Arts’ mandate is to deliver comprehensive undergraduate and graduate education in the linked disciplines of film, photography and integrated digital. The curriculum embraces a balance of theory and practice, fine art and commercial production, while nourishing critical thinking and freedom of expression. Each program recognizes the vital contribution of art, design, and visual and critical studies in their respective fields of specialization.
