A talk by Skawennati, Monday, March 1

York university’s Department of Cinema and Media Arts, Sensorium, imagineNATIVE & VTape are delighted to present a talk by Skawennati   


Skawennati makes art that addresses history, the future, and change from her perspective as an urban Kanien’kehá:ka (Mohawk) woman and as a cyberpunk avatar. She is Co-Director of the Aboriginal Territories in Cyberspace at Concordia University in Montreal.

Her works have been presented in Europe, Oceania, China and across North America in exhibitions such as “Uchronia I What if?”, in the HyperPavilion at the 57th Venice Biennale; “Now? Now!” at the Biennale of the Americas; and “Looking Forward (L’Avenir)” at the Montreal Biennale. They are included in the collections of the National Gallery of Canada and the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, among others.

Skawennati’s talk is part of the Regeneration: All Our Relations series organized through Sensorium: The Centre for Digital Art and Technology, and is supported by the Indigeneity in Teaching and Learning Fund at York University.

DATE: Monday, March 1

TIME: 12:30pm- 2:00pm
