Join guest curator Becca Taylor to learn about curating Mothering Spaces and stories about new artwork created for the exhibition.
Becca Taylor is a curator and multi-disciplinary artist with Cree, Scottish and Irish descent. Her curatorial practice involves investigations of Indigenous community building, Indigenous feminism, methodologies of gathering and ephemera of living actions.
She was awarded the Aboriginal curator-in-residence from the Canada Council in 2015, a 12-month residency at Urban Shaman Gallery in Winnipeg, Manitoba, where she curated Traces (2016). From 2016 to 2017, she was in the Indigenous Curatorial Research Practicum at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, curating A Light Left On (2016).
