Join us for a curatorial talk and tour of Settling in Place: Aylan Couchie, Martha Griffith and Charmaine Lurch. This group show features contemporary installations concerned with excavating and making visible material reminders of diverse and contested histories of place, settlement and community-making within Ontario. Settling in Place remains on view through October 28, 2018.

Andrea Fatona is an independent curator and an associate professor at the Ontario College of Art and Design University. She is concerned with issues of equity within the sphere of the arts and the pedagogical possibilities of art works produced by “other” Canadians in articulating broader perspectives of Canadian identities. Her broader interest is in the ways in which art, “culture” and “education” can be employed to illuminate complex issues that pertain to social justice, citizenship, belonging and nationhood. She is the recipient of awards from the Canada Council for the Arts, the Ontario Arts Council and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and was the 2017/18 OCAD U-Massey Fellow. Fatona has published scholarly articles, catalogue essays and book chapters in a range of publications.
