Saskatchewan Gothic

by Elizabeth Matheson and Dr. Christine Ramsay


Prairie Gothic shows a group of Saskatchewan-located artists, who have backgrounds in indigenous culture and other national cultures, redefine the aesthetic, prairie gothic. It is a sensibility derived from harsh and alienating prairie landscape. These artists recognize prairie gothic's colonial origin and decide to expand it in the context of transnational realities.
