Deanna Bowen – Artist’s Talk at McMaster Museum of Art

March 19, 12:30 pm

Deanna Bowen is a Toronto-based video installation and performance artist, whose work combines personal autobiography and archival research to raise questions about the silences and gaps in familial and collective histories of slavery, racism, and migration. Her work has been exhibited internationally in galleries and film festivals and, in the spring of 2013, she curated a solo show at The Art Gallery of York University about the Ku Klux Klan and its migration to Canada.

Her video, sum of the parts: what can be named, 2010 is a centrepiece of the exhibition This is Me, This is Also Me, on view at McMaster Museum of Art until March 21. In the work, the artist recounts the ‘disremembered’ journey of the Bowen family from its earliest documented history in Georgia in 1815.
