URGENT: CANCELLATION NOTICE

image


Please be advised Regina José Galindo’s performance Movilización (carguen con sus muertos)/ Mobilization (carry your own dead) co-presented by Sur Gallery and the Toronto Performance Art Collective has been cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control. The performance was scheduled to take place Thursday, November 16th, 2017 at 7:30pm at Sur Gallery.

We would like to apologize for any inconveniences that this cancellation brings.

Please be advised that the Conversation the following day will remain as scheduled and the artist will address the audience via Skype.


About the Conversation:

Conversation with Irene Loughlin, Carlotta McAllister, Steven Schnoor, and Dot Tuer on Regina José Galindo’s work and the impact of Canadian mining companies in Guatemala.

Communications Professor at Concordia University Steven Schnoor is a Postdoctoral Fellow with the Indigenous Stewardship of Environment and Alternative Development and Centre for Indigenous Conservation and Development Alternatives research programs at the Department of Anthropology at McGill University. Schnoor is the filmmaker of a documentary depicting the violent eviction of Mayan subsistence farmers from their homes in rural Guatemala at the behest of a Canadian mining company.

Assistant Professor at York University and Deputy of CERLAC-Centre for Research on Latin America and the Caribbean, Carlotta McAllister’s research is on the formation of political and moral agency in situations of violent conflict and her primary conducted fieldwork is in Guatemala.

Writer and cultural historian Dot Tuer’s research focuses on Canadian and Latin American art of the contemporary and modern periods with a speciality in new media, photography, and performance and has a scholarly interest in colonial Latin America and transcultural exchange. Tuer’s current writing and collaborative projects address the relationship of social memory and witnessing to political agency in the Americas.

Performance artist and writer Irene Loughlin has worked with images challenging the social constructs surrounding mental illness, drawing visual metaphors from medical, ecological and diasporic landscapes. Loughlin has exhibited extensively both nationally and internationally, with particularly close connections to South and Central American art communities.

Moderated by Tamara Toledo.
