Panel #2: Allegories of the Present
This virtual panel invites four artists to talk about their practices relating to history, storytelling, and archives. The conversation may also touch upon affinities between their practices with Stan Douglas’s work in general and on Black diasporic visual production. Michèle Pearson Clark (Toronto) explores representation and social engagement through photography, film, video, and installations, and will also share her recent experience as Photo Laureate for the City of Toronto (2019-2022). Charles Campbell (Victoria) explores Black history through his performances and sonic installations, especially through his performance character Actor Boy and the Travels in Birdsong and Maroonscape projects. Michaëlle Sergile’s (Montreal) use of weaving and archives in her work question the official historical narratives of her native Haiti as a way to rewrite histories and reinhabit spaces, while Dawit Petros (Chicago) deals with issues of colonialism, migration, space and architecture in his work, specifically Spazio Disponibile.
