3 Works: PJ Anderson on Contain

Thu May 06, 2021 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

FREE with Registration

In this live online event hosted by Chief Curator Sequoia Miller, Manitoba-based artist PJ Anderson will discuss three of her artworks in connection to the theme “Contain.” Anderson’s work explores craft, identity and culture, informed by the uneasy relationship between her indirect knowledge of her ancestors and a desire for connection to her African and Indigenous roots.
